Snow Falling On Palm Trees

Snow fell on Split today. Due to Mediterranean climate, it is very rare occurrence and the source of great joy for Split's children. City administration tends to be less enthusiastic about this phenomenon, because every such occurrence shows complete lack of preparation for traffic and other problems that might arise. Thankfully, the snow fell but only to melt immediately. The streets weren't turned white, there weren't snow fights among children and the amount of traffic accidents was at regular level.

However, when snow falls on Split it means that the rest of country, which doesn't enjoy benefits of Mediterranean climate, is hit hard with snow and blizzards. Any such occurrence results with complete breakdown of all traffic between northern and southern sections of Croatia – all that despite billions of HRK invested in new roads, bridges and other sections of transport infrastructure.
