And so 新京报/The Beijing News’ Lin Wenlong confirms that, yes, in fact yesterday was really rather cold. The coldest December day Beijing has experienced since 1951, in fact, with a high of minus 8.8 degrees celsius. Setting records is always cool. Apparently a tiny little bit of snow did fall on northern and eastern suburbs like Pinggu, Shunyi and Tongzhou, but that big, big wind blew the rest of the snow down to Tianjin.
