|There's snow in the hills!

But no snow in El Masnou
We had unseasonably cold weather yesterday. There was snow all over Catalunya, even on some beaches in Barcelona. Ruben said that it was snowing strongly in Sabadell during the evening. Although the temperature got down to 2℃ (36℉), I didn’t see any flurries at my home. This is the first time that I have seen snow on the hills in the four years that I have been here. It reminds me of the Bay Area in winter.
Coast and Snow
The hills in the background separate Badalona from Montgat. They are about 500 m (1500 ft) high.
Port and Snow
Snowy hills from the sports marina. My home is visible behind the first palm on the right.
Snow and río de Alella
Looking at the hills with snow from the playa del Masnou. The río de Alella is on the right.
The beach has been heavily eroded from recent storms.
