It was forecast rain, but the temperature plummeted overnight, just three degrees in places! Hence it fell as snow. This “latest” freak weather event covers the WHOLE of Spain, not just the mountains, and it´s even invaded the tip of Africa.
Only three weeks ago we endured what was named the “Super Storm.” Oh please give us a break weather god, we thought everything was back to normal after that.
This morning I came downstairs, looked out the window and went into shock mode. A few simple innocent words were uttered: “WHAT THE F*CK! Dave come and look at this!”
Bear in mind it must have snowed heavily overnight and then turned to rain. Not being early risers we thought that was it, well no it wasn’t.
Still peeing down and there´s more to come in the next couple of days, snow & rain, just rain, just snow, nobody knows. Which means I may be stuck in the house, reminiscing and blogging about what it was like just a few days ago.
This is a photo of the closest beach to us, taken this morning. The same one where we sat basking in the sun on Christmas Day.

Unbelievable but true!
The Med has turned angry again, and we can hear the crashing waves from stood outside our house. Such weather conditions can be especially hazardous to coastal regions, forecast correctly in advance,, but subject to change till the sun reappears! Schools and even main roads are closed.
Must be getting wise to it now! The (heavy rain at the moment) has prevented us jumping in the car and going to an important appointment this afternoon. The smooth roads are built to withstand heat not cater for rain, cold, and car tyres all at once. (Never mind snow!) Too risky.
Dave´s just seen on the news that a football team from Russia has come here to practice in the warmth of outdoors. Oh dear, they´ve ended up playing at an indoor pitch just like where they came from.
Welcome to the Costa Blanca!
