Photos: Iceland's capital hit by highest snowfall since 1937
Monday, February 27, 2017, 1:48 PM - Reykjavik, Iceland, is currently buried under 51 cm of snow — the most snowfall the city has seen in 80 years.
There's only one other instance in which Reykjavik has received more snow in a single sitting: January 1937, when 55 cm blanketed the city.
This year's blizzard saw a burst of 30 to 40 cm of snow fall in a matter of hours, the BBC reports.
The locals, however, didn't seem to mind. Several photos and videos have been shared to social media in the storm's wake. Here's a look at Reykjavik's stunning (and massive) delivery of freshly fallen powder.
