The radio this morning reported of places in Galicia with 4 meters of snow (!). I have a hard time believing it, I think we should say that "It has snowed a lot". This is ofcourse only true only above 500-800 meters. Santiago de Compostela has about 1-2 c as a low.

This picture is from O Cebreiro (El Correo Gallego):

Snow widespread in N Spain, even some in Madrid; photos at http://www.lavozdegalicia.es/albumes/in ... 6226145034

An article in Voz de Galicia claims that Cebreiro is now seeing a new sort of 'pilgrim': those looking for winter sports, driving up there with skis, snowboards, etc.

I've decided the problem with visibility on the Cebreiro webcam is that the lens has frozen over - anyone got any opinions on this?

Wintry conditions set to continue, with more snow forecast over the next few days.

Later edit: photo of Camino between Herrerias and Vega de Valcarce on way up to Cebreiro

Cruz de Ferro pass currently closed to traffic.
And it seems parts of Burgos province had non-stop snow for more than 30 hours, though the webcam shows only a thin coating of snow in the city itself. http://www.burgoscity.com/burgos/webcam.php
