Madrid: not to make light of the hardship caused…

12 Jan

Winters on the Castilian plateau are notoriously harsh but it sounds like this storm has caught Madrileños completely off-guard, or just unequipped to handle this much snowfall. That said, and without ignoring the hardship caused to so many, I generally find Madrid in winter delightful: the weather is usually bright and crisp and matches the leaden foods and wines better…and the indomitable spirit of Madrileños knows how to have fun no matter what the challenges.
