  • Description

    SUMMER HOLIDAY-MAKERS IN EUROPE SHIVERED AT THE WEEKEND IN A SHOCK COLD SNAP THAT BROUGHT HEAVY SNOW FALLS IN MANY ALPINE REGIONS. IN THE BAVARIAN ALPS, GERMANY, EIGHT INCHES (20 CENTIMETRES) OF SNOW FELL ON SUNDAY NIGHT.

    SCORES OF SUN-SEEKING VACATIONERS AWOKE NEXT MORNING AMID ARCTIC-LIKE CONDITIONS. CAMPERS AND HOTEL GUESTS, MANY OF THEM IN LIGHT SUMMER WEAR, GAZED MOROSELY AT SNOW DRIFTS.

    IT WAS MUCH THE SAME ELSEWHERE IN EUROPE. SNOW FELL FOR NEARLY 24 HOURS IN THE ITALIAN ALPS, WHILE MOUNT MATTERHORN WAS ALSO SNOW-TOPPED -- A RARE SIGHT IN AUGUST.

    (IN THE PYRENEES, SHEPHERDS REPORTED THE UNSEASONABLE WEATHER WAS DRIVING BEARS DOWN FROM THE MOUNTAIN HEIGHTS. DOZENS OF LAMBS HAD BEEN EATEN BY BEARS OVER THE WEEKEND, THEY SAID).
