Snowy Madrid

Am I still living in Madrid? I woke up this morning and snow was coming down fast and thick. It's been snowing all day, and though it's tapered off a bit it doesn't look like it's going to stop. I've never seen this much snow in Madrid, so I went out and took some photos of my barrio.

Lots of other people were out snapping pics too, so I probably won't be the only Madrid blog posting on this!

This snowy Jesus stands in front of an old restored hospital, now a geriatric center. My wife's great uncle used to work here. I posted about this beautiful building earlier.

This is Quevedo, a famous poet from Spain's seventeenth century Golden Age. I think the snow perfectly accentuates his hose, flouncy coat, and powdered wig to create a classic yet stylish winter ensemble. I respectfully call him La Reinona Gorda, "the fat drag queen".
