Upside down

I embedded a video a while ago about traffic chaos caused by unexpected snow fall in a city where it does not snow too often. As it eventually turned out the footage was from Seattle.

This fresh footage (via Barbara) is from Madrid a week ago. Unlike drivers in Seattle, drivers in Madrid seem to be reasonably well in control of the unusual road conditions. That said, several highways around Madrid were closed to cope with the snow, according to eSpanien.

Meanwhile here in Helsinki where that kind of weather would be normal this time of the year, we have just 2 degrees below freezing point and a very thin, almost non-existing snow layer on the ground. Looks like the weather map has been turned upside down.

  1. Well, given the typical weather conditions of Helsinki, I’d expect that people there are unable to cope with clear and dry roads ūüėČ

  2. Maybe but we would need to see some clear and dry roads to be sure.
