Snowy Spain 

18 Jan

Like most yotties I tend to be a bit (OK, a lot) obsessed with the weather. You may have noticed. Well, here is another weather post. I hope you’ll excuse me because this is something that really is a bit out of the ordinary.

Of course it snows in Spain, there are ski resorts about three hours drive from here, but Jávea is the northern Costa Blanca. It has its own microclimate, or so I’m reliably told. We had lunch in the garden on Christmas Day which is nothing exceptional. Today there was snow on the beach. Although a dusting on the nearby mountains is not uncommon, the general consensus seems to be that the last time Jávea saw snow like this was 1983. As you can see from the pictures it wouldn’t have been a big deal at home in the UK but, believe me, here it is something special. A red alert for snow is in force for the next two days which means there may well be more to come. 

So I had to post some of the pictures kindly shared on Jávea Connect. I think they are all perfectly lovely. I hope you agree.

    Big Wow! Thanks for sharing your snow photos, I always find it fascinating when it snows where you don’t expect it!

      Thanks, Georgie and, yes, this was very unexpected. We were marvelling last night when we saw a bit of sleet on the windscreen!

    My goodness- Javea in the snow:amazing! We usually visit around Easter (https://funcomesfirstsite.wordpress.com/2017/05/17/javea-2017/) so we do have rather variable weather but can’t imagine it in snow! Thanks for sharing
