Beijing welcomes first snow this year

THERE must have been no grumbles when sleepy-eyed kids in Beijing were dragged out of their beds this morning, when the city's first snowfall this winter capped roofs and lawn in every neighborhood.

The snow, which started last night, covered most of the city proper. It is expected to bring troubles to the city's traffic.

"Snowfall and wet roads will definitely cause traffic jam to the city," said a local taxi driver surnamed Xia. "But luckily it's Sunday today when most people do not have to go to work. Or it could have been worse."
