A white weekend surpise in the Canaries
Just as spring began, rain had been forecast for the weekend in the Canaries, where we know we can sometimes have heavy downpours. However, on some islands, for example, on La Gomera and Gran Canaria there was even hail. Drivers were asked to be extremely careful.
