    Scores of people in Madrid neglected calls by the authorities to stay home and flocked outside to engage in winter activities, as the Spanish capital was paralyzed by the biggest snowfall in half a century, leaving three dead.

    Storm Filomena, which buried Madrid under a record 50 centimeters of snow on Friday, became a disaster for the city.

    The blizzard caused at least three fatalities in the city and nearby areas, Interior Minister Fernando Grande-Marlaska said on Saturday. A man and a woman drowned in a car after it was swept away by a swollen river, while a homeless person froze to death.

    But, after coping with the initial shock, many city-dwellers rejoiced in the unusual weather conditions.

    Videos on social media showed cheerful crowds engaging in massive snowball fights in the center of the capital.

    Others featured people making their way around the snow-covered streets on skis, and even one person with a sled being pulled by dogs.

    Global warming, more like the ice age 😨
