First snow of winter 2011-12 on Teide

[youtube][/youtube]There’s not much of it, but Teide has had the first snowfall of winter 2011-12, as can be seen in the very brief video above. It’s still warm, so it probably won’t last long, but it serves to announce the arrival of autumn. Apparently, according to local farmers, snow this early (it normally doesn’t appear until November at the earliest) heralds a long, cold winter. Let’s hope not!
