Snow In Felanitx

We had snow in Felanitx (altitude 95.26 m) last night. Nothing spectacular, mind you, but still. Snow in Mallorca very rarely gets to as low as sea level, but last night was one of the few exceptions.

It had been a very Northern day, all day yesterday. During the daytime, I was driving from Felanitx to Port d’Alcúdia. Just as I got to the Magic Roundabout, it started to snow (hail?), whatever. Not much, but the air was brisk and cold. On my drive up, I had seen the snow capped peaks of Puig Massanella (1,365 m) and Puig Major (1,445 m) in the distance. Later, in the afternoon, I walked along the beach in Platja de Muro, and the wind was ravaging at high speed (70 to 80 kmh, I would guess), reminding me of walks along beaches in Holland and the North Sea. The waves came roaring in with quite some fervency, too. At night, the temperature in Felanitx dropped to perhaps 2° C, and then it started to snow. Not a lot, but enough to talk about it.

Hope you don’t mind.

The photo was taken in Felanitx, Mallorca, Baleares, Spain. The date: February 11th, 2010. The time was 22:35:45.
