    dont know the dates when i was a kid but i know we got new thick jumpers etc as none had been taken plus new coats .
    but last january i picked my lad up in alicante on 15th then we drove to punta primaon the wednesday snow when we woke . then later heavy rain and lightning . plus a big builders crane got hit by the lightning . you never know what an adventure will bring .
    usually snow stops out by the bypass in beni. seen that a few times but on the beach i shall always remember.

    Did you know, that Madrid is the highest capitol city in Europe. In spring the snow can clearly be seen on the surrounding mountains (hills)

    yes the average height of the land is 650mtrs in spain . highest country behind switzerland.
    as we land at santander its normal to see snow even in october and again fresh snow as we leave end of april.
    snow is very often still around on high mountains even on the longest day.
    thats the beauty of spain it varies so much. even when your near gibralter you see snow on the hills inland .
    yet you can be on the beach sunbathing .
    i travel usually with a mate from fort william ,he is always looking at the height signs and commenting how high we are . he likes taking pics of the signs to show folk at home . usually make ben nevis seem like a mole hill.
    its a shame in summer its roasting in many inland places yet in winter its freezing . doesnt give alot of visiting in comfort time . but it is an amazing country. but so big it would take more than a life time to see it all. been trying most of mine .

    I was at La Manga when it snowed !
    Most of the local bars have got pictures up of it as it is fairly unusual in that part of Spain and it was a decent covering.
    Spain is actually the second most mountainous country in Europe
    I have also been at a Spanish resort in June when a hail storm hit with stones the size of large marbles it wrecked cars and many caravan and motorhomes with aluminium roofs, we were in the Laika with a solid fibreglass roof so no problem, a Dutch guy was chuffed they had gone for a meal in their new Mercedes as that didn't get hit but the caravan he left behind did .

    I have travelled south through France over the past week. It has been very cold and there has already been snow, heavy in some parts.
