None in the city of Madrid ( :'() though I think there have been snowfalls in the Sierra to the north.

Niether rain nor snow in the Sierra de Grazalema, Cadiz.
Often called the "wettest place in Spain"
Thinking of visiting the beautiful Sierra de Grazalema in Andalucia?

Very, very windy here in Extremadura, although clear with plenty of sunshine, but no sign of precipitation of any kind. Snow does not look any further down on the mountains either.

We got the snow, about a foot overnight which started to melt a little by midday.  The wind has been howling around 45 kph and the birds have been going 'wild' in the garden.  I spent most of the day between work and the window.  Interesting watching the Robin (Erithacus rubecula) get very territorial over our garden (which he believes is his), saw what looked like a stonechat given its marching orders along with a Great Tit (Parus major).

Well no sign of snow in our part of the Els Ports, but a very bitter high wind.

Extremely windy, cold and sunny here yesterday.  The Pyrenees got the biggest snowfall of the winter.

hi All
A bit of snow in the mountains, and at least 6 flakes here in Leon, but in reality nothing like we should be getting, yesterday gardening in Torre, it was cool in the morning, but by afternoon it was around 15 degs. everything is starting to shoot and the flower buds are waiting to open on the apple trees, sadly few insects, and so they are unlikely to bear much fruit this year, unless I go round pollinating with a paint brush, but i do fell a little strange having sex with an Apple tree.
regards
Dave

Interesting comment for the ratings there Dave  :o
Anyway, we got snow. Not the dump we need but better than a spit in the face (is that what I mean?) The drastic drop in temperature is more like it. Hope there's more on the way.....

I have heard of the song 'I talk to the trees'
but not
'I have sex with the trees,
But they don't listen to me'
Well nothing different there then - that is the 'don't listen to me' not the 'I have sex with the trees'
