It was a breathtaking winter view as early November snow draped its white sheet on the Great Wall of China. People huddled atop the wall, many skidded but tried to hold on and enjoy the moment. Many tourists went to click snapshots and selfies of The Great Wall of China as it stood snow clad. It looked like a fairy tale view from the top.
Flights were cancelled and delayed as people were stranded due to unfavorable flying conditions at the airports. People in China were left to endure the biting cold air. More than 200 flights were canceled in Beijing.
Schools and roads were closed across portions of China. While the snow was one of Beijing’s heaviest in recent November history, it isn’t unheard of and it wasn’t even the first of the year.
The temperature hit very low. The average high temperature in late November is around 8 degrees C (46 degrees F). The last day with a colder high temperature was January 2, 2013 when it was a bitter minus 6 degrees C (21 degrees F).
