Snow in Malta???




Snow in Malta ??? now is that possible or not?? Of course not, however fields in Victoria, Gozo, were this morning blanketed in white after a freak hailstorm hit the sister island at around 6 a.m.

A reader told timesofmalta.com that upon looking out of the window soon after she woke up, she saw all the fields in front of her covered with hail. She told timesofmalta.com that footprints in front of her doorstep measured some 2 inches deep. Picture and information from the times of malta website.

It wasn't snow - it says in the caption that it was hail. Only once in living memory did we have snow, because insular climactic conditions, and the fact that we are in a closed sea, makes snow a
quasi-impossible occurrence.

Never any guarantee with the weather!

If I lived on Malta I would have to take an occasional trip to play in the snow. It would be hard to live without one of natures wonders.
