Snow hits Southern Spain....

Why not...they deserve some snow too...
SNOW fell in parts of Spain for the first time in half a century on Monday as a wave of Arctic cold that has killed scores of people and caused billions of euros in damage to Europe's economy swept southwards.

As villages in parts of north-east Germany remained cut off from the outside world by giant snowdrifts, authorities sounded the alert in 18 regions across central and northern Spain in anticipation of further snow and icy temperatures.

More than 270 flights were cancelled at Madrid-Barajas airport, while neighbouring Portugal also struggled to cope with snowfall which caused the closure of around 50 main roads. Scores spent the night stuck in their vehicles.

The southern Spanish city of Seville, which normally enjoys temperatures in January of around 15 deg C, shivered under its first snowfall in half a century.
