Snow in high elevations


Staff member
I just saw the weather report on TVE and saw the snow-flake sign for the first time this year. Higher elevations of northern Spain might get some of it, probably not much, but it means that the 20c days that we have had are over.

My in laws harvested tomatoes and green peppers yesterday, not normal for November. 5 weeks from Christmas and we need some winter! (Remember I am Norwegian!).

Un saludo,
Down bag (90/10 duvet) of 700 fills with 180 g (6.34 ounces) of filling. Mummy-shaped structure, ideal when you are looking for lightness with great heating performance.
Well, Ivar, here is a report from "cold" Norway.

14 degrees and warm wind, and a lot of rain................ :cry:

Gresset spirer og krokusen titter frem.

No snow in sight, and a bit over a month to christmas...................

Ivar, here in Seattle, we have had snow, with lots of snow in the mountains. With the passage of time, my Norwegian language skills are gone, but I remember my father praising big snow falls as great for cross country skiing.

When we did the Camino in late March and April of this year, I was so glad we only had to contend with occasional small patches of snow along the first part of EL Camino Frances.

Anyway, enjoy whatever weather you may have in Santiago. Steve
Hi steve good to hear from you.

Seattle is my favorite US city. They have good meatballs in Ballard, you should check them out.

By the way, it is raining quite heavily in Santiago tonight.

Greetings from Santiago,
snow in high elevations and in Seattle

Ivar, I live next to Ballard and often eat there. I trained for El Camino on the bike and foot path that passes through Ballard and continues along the shore to the north part of Seattle.

We had snow again last night. The Seattle football team, the Seahawks, played at home on a nationally televised game, so the whole nation saw Seattle`s snow.

Take care, Steve
The 2024 Camino guides will be coming out little by little. Here is a collection of the ones that are out so far.
Yepp, first cold night/morning in Santiago this year. They talk about 0c (32F) as a low last night in Santiago.

O'Cebreiro certainly had less due to the elevation. The bright side is that there are no clouds, and this means that in a few hours it will be sunny and (my guess) about 10-15c.

Un saludo,
