30 Unusual Pics Of Spain Experiencing Their Biggest Snowfall In Decades

This is one special night for Spain!

Some people have spent almost their whole life living in Spain without ever seeing the ground covered in thick snow. At most, they’ll only see heavy rainfall and experience colder weather at night. But for the first time in more than 50 years, the interior minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska dubbed the Filomena storm as ‘the most intense.’

This storm is heavy enough to cause the airport in Madrid, the heaviest hit, to close down temporarily. Railroads and trains are stopped, with two have been found frozen to death.

The people of Spain are reveling in an unusual phenomenon. For the first time for many people, they can do a snowball fight just outside their home on Madrid’s quiet streets. Fun fact: Filomena means ‘friend, lover, a friend of strength’ in its original Greek language.

A once in a lifetime view on Spain.
