Winter in Spain is normally mild and bearable, but a large quantity of snow and ice has been recorded for this year’s winter season in the country. Moreover, Molina de Aragón’s -25C is said to be Spain’s coldest recorded temperature for the past 20 years. Officials have also received a surge of emergency calls from the locals, so they have warned the elderly to stay indoors until the snow and ice have been cleared. According to El País Daily, a Spanish newspaper, 1,300 snow removal vehicles were able to push snow 12,100 kilometers away from roads to keep them ice-free.
