Snow at Tsinghua University
Snow at Tsinghua University, a university located right next to Beida.

The harsh wind turned the “feels like” temperature well below the freezing point. I guess during the sandstorms I will have to endure the the wind will be alike but the sand will make it worse than now.

A Chinese we had dinner with tonight was joking that its snowing just because of us: So far the winter in Beijing had be relativly warm and without a lot of snow (as in Germany).
