Throughout our brutal month of February, my friend Alejandro was making me thoroughly jealous with his weather reports of sunny skies and temperatures as high as 80 F in Mexico City. But then last Thursday, a cold front came through. Heavy rains hit Mexico City; one section of the metropolitan area, Ciudad Satélite, had several inches of hail. At higher elevations in the mountains to the east of the city, the precipitation was in the form of snow. The major toll road from Mexico City to Puebla, the main link to the east, was closed when a couple inches of snow fell.
