On the morning of a final exam, I got up extra early to get in some last minute study time. It was Dec 2010 and Madrid just saw its first real snowfall in years. I took this picture of the accumulated snow as I groggily headed to my classroom at 7:00am.
Having grown up in the midwest near Lake Michigan, I know all about trudging across multiple feet of snow all through the winter. Not so in Madrid!
This particular 'storm' threw Madrileños way off and my professor came in an hour late, frazzled and concerned for our safety in this "dangerous weather" :)
