This year Christmas there is no snow to see for miles. Here in Basel it is not very surprising, the Rhine keeps the temperatures up and it feels like a cold and rainy autumn. A bit sad though, tomorrow when we will visit my parents in the Black Forest it might be snowing and be very cold so that we will complain a bit ;) . In Madrid snow is something very rare. I may have seen it snowing once after Christmas in January but no snow was arriving on the street. If you want to have some you have to go out to the Sierra or one of the cities in the north of Madrid.
