If you take an example from January/February of 2011, yes, it does snow in Beijing and in Shanghai during those months.

Beijing's snow depends on the government. If they decide it's too dry, they'll shoot up some chemicals to make it snow. But they're only fooling themselves if they think they can control mother nature. Just wait and see...wahahaha!!!!

I've looked at weather sites, but all it says is "percipitation" averages for these months. I live in upstate NY, near Buffalo, and we have average percipitation of like 40 inches (slight exageration). It's SNOW. I couldn't decide if the percip in BJ or Shanhai was snow or rain.... so thanks!

 

And LOL Redaria!

Well it snows here in Shanghai sometimes but it's not always promised. It's like the southern part of America, when you get snow it's like wow oh my god it's snowing and everyone is happy!!!!

The central plains area where Beijing and Shanghai are is really dry and prone to drought so don't expect to see much snow if its been a particularly dry year.

I have been in shanghai for 10 years and I can honesty say that it rarely ever snows but if it does, it's not very much and doesn't stay long. The most snow I have seen in shanghai was about 1 or 2 inches and it stayed about 3 days.

A:Can a new employer help you? Possibly but it's really hard to say for sure. I used to be involved in hiring new teachers and a couple of times we had people we wanted to hire who were having trouble with their old school - situations similar to yours. Our school was legally able to hire foreign teachers, did everything by the book and was well connected, usually schools that mess people around with visa stuff aren't operating legally so a call from our visa guy to theirs telling them they were breaking the law, we were in the middle of processing the visa stuff with the PSB and the next phone call they got regarding this teacher was likely to be from the PSB asking some hard questions was usually enough to get them to co-operate. No school doing illegal stuff wants the PSB getting too interested in what they're doing. There's a chance a new employer could figure something out if they really want to hire you but these are difficult times, their hands might be tied too.    -- Stiggs
