Nah, its the Syrian or Tunisian snow that really grinds my gears. Pretty sure I saved a snow cover map one year where the entire Northern Hemisphere (Eurasia, North America and Japan etc) down to the Med and parts of North Africa was Snow covered....and Ireland alone was an Oasis if green. The most northerly snow free part of the planet by far. ie. The Eurasian Snow cover stopped at the Welsh Coast, yet to our South France, Spain and parts of North Africa had Snow cover.

Lucky you. Beautiful part of the world. Very fond memories of hiking in the snowy Sierra Nevada just outside the city, and the Alhambra never gets old no matter how many times you visit.
