It started a week ago and still going….for those of u over 40 yrs old u might have seen such snow in Tehran before..but it certainly has not happened since Iranians went nuts and picked an insane old man to lead this nation. I would guess it has snowed over a meter in north of Tehran…snow so heavy that broke a few trees in khiaboone pahlavi, the only bad thing is that it has rendered most satellite dishes out of order and u have to watch the IRI TV all day long about how the stupid revolution took place.

In any case Tehran is certainly beautiful under the snow and this heavy downpour has created so many picturesque scenes…Jaye hame khali

State television said on Thursday that between 7,000 and 8,000 motorists were stuck in heavy snow on the higway between the city of Qazvin, situated around 150 kilometers (95 miles) west of Tehran, and the Caspian Sea city of Rasht.

Official radio also said Rasht had been completely cut off and parts of the city were without running water, gas and electricity, having had over 1.5 metres (five feet) of snow.

Non-stop snow showers and blizzards have been blanketing northern Iran with powder for the past 10 days. Iran's meteorological organisation has described the snowfall as the heaviest in decades.

Parts of Tehran have also been blanketed with over a metre of snow.
