Today is the 50th anniversary of the last time there was a snowfall in the downtown and lower areas of Mexico City. As a matter of fact, the snowfall affected all the areas above 2000 meters above sea level on the country.

I'll post some photos from that time.

... I was born 4 years later, and didn't really see personally a snowfall until November 2006 in Schiphol Airport.

I did not think it was possible to snow in Mexico City. The pictures are totally amazing. Thank you for sharing them.

Wow, I would almost say picturesque as well. Who would have imagined there would be snow in Mexico, what with being such a hot place and all that.
Truly amazing. I agree with Yogi, the photos are truly wonderful.
:cool:

They forecast wintry weather for the UK tomorrow Thursday. I don't know how much snow we'll have in the far sw of Wales in the UK.
