2013 Mar 20 Snow Shots: Winter Won't Quit
If you're the schmuck who was fooled into thinking last week's weather was a sign that winter was over, we feel sorry for you. Mother Nature plopped a load of snow on the capital last night, a solemn reminder of just how slushy Beijing's streets can get.
Luckily, today's blue skies make all the white stuff worth photographing, so maybe we can excuse it this time. And, even though the snow is said to have reached 20cm in some spots, temperatures are supposed to rise again within the next few days. Sure, today is officially supposed to be the first day of spring as marked by the vernal equinox, but should we really fall for it?
Spring or no spring, some of us will be spending today dodging colossal ice chunks being mopped off the overhang of our office buildings' front doors, slipping along the slick, smooth stone paths that are pretty much unavoidable for walkers, and wading through the gallons of water that will come later. While you're at it, take a moment to snap a picture and post it in our comments section. We already have a few to get you inspired in our gallery here.
