It snowed.

Not just a flurry, either, but actual snow. This is extremely atypical in Beijing in general, but especially this late in winter. The cause was government intervention due to a huge drought that's hit us this year. According to UK's The Times, "500 cigarette-sized sticks of silver iodide had been seeded into clouds," which caused a record amount of precipitation. It was quite pretty to see for a Florida boy.
