The terrible snow and cold of Mashhad in 1972

Homeland has no shortage of harsh winters, but the story of the winter of 1350 has another story. This year, a deadly cold grips the country. As the air temperature reaches minus 50 degrees and lower in some places, all the roads are closed, and in some places, the height of snow is reported between 8 and 12 meters. This cold also paralyzes life in big cities like Mashhad and causes many bitter events, and the following lines are a reminder of those days, which were compiled based on the report recorded in the press. The first press news in the old days of Mashhad, which talked about the terrible snow, was printed and published in the “Kaghez Akhbar” newspaper on the date of 25 Jumadi al-Awal 1270.
