Snow in Santiago, Chile

Chile's capital was blanketed this weekend by the biggest snowfall in decades, with some residents grumbling about blocked roads and downed power lines, while others made snowmen or tossed snowballs.

Tens of thousands of people had their power knocked out in Santiago's metropolitan area with some parts receiving up to 40 centimeters (16 inches) of the white stuff, according to the National Emergency Office.

 

I didn't even know snow is possible in Santiago.  :huh:

It looks like areas closer to the center of the city received around two inches or so. It isn't totally surprising as they are 1700 feet up and right against the Andies. Kind of like that time that the higher elevations in SoCal got a dusting of snow.

South America has been seeing stronger winters of late however. Argentina has been getting more snow these past few winters.
