Now for another entry from the “you’ve got to be kidding me” news files. Over the past week, some areas of Mexico have received almost ten feet of snow! This is not a joke … here are pictures from a few suburban areas that were particularly hard hit by these freak snowstorms:

    You had me there for a while! After reading the article, I realized it was Mexico, New York. Ha!

    Nevertheless, I wouldn’t want to be in their boots. My back is sore just thinking about the shoveling…

    WOW thats just amazing, something we in UK can hardly imagine. We come to a standstill after 2 inches let alone 10 foot!

    Send the snow to Australia. We’ll all be buying water soon. Maybe this represents a boon for Mexico!

    If it really did snow 10 feet in Mexico that would sure make border enforcement easier!

    Pretty good!
    But for all people here that don’t know Mexico the country does get snow, and a lot. specially in the northern states. It is sorta sad how many cliches we believe. but you did get a few people with this, It was a good one.

    Its sort of sad that people dont know that the southern end of the Rocky mountains pass through the spine of Mexico, and that deep snows occasionally fall above 8000 feet in mexico. Look at the Mountains surrounding Ciudad de mexico!!!!

    stewart walker, you are an idiot, first, you are an idiotic racist, then you are also an ignorant since we dirty Mexicans get snow all years in the northern states, but since you don’t leave your redneck neighborhood, you probably don´t know it.
