Madrilenos having time of their lives in the snow

Madrid, this weekend, has experienced a rare snowstorm.

The city is coated with snow, which in some places comes to above knee height.

For many parts of the world, and for some parts of Spain, this would not be unheard of, but even the oldest MadrileƱos cannot remember something like this.

Major national news networks have posted unusual photos, including trees felled by the weight of the snow and mass snowball fights.

Noticeable has been the number of MadrileƱos who have taken to ski-ing around the capital city.

However, this video, which has started doing the rounds, shows a sense of opportunism, that deserves both a prize and possibly a prison sentence.
