Snow Day! (Now with more pics!)




We had a huge snowstorm here last night. It's probably the most snow I can remember seeing in my almost 6 years here. As you can imagine, the Italians re not handling it very well. I walked to the bar for my coffee this morning and there cars stuck everywhere. Those that weren't stuck were sliding all over the road. It was actually sort of comical.

Anyway, I was relieved to hear that the base is closed today and we were told not to come to work. I was going to go in anyway but my boss reminded me that we work on top of a mountain and there's no way my car would make it up to the top. So I'm relieved because the only thing I hate more than driving in Italy is driving in the snow in Italy...

EDIT: Here's how we spent the day:

What a coincidence. It's 90 degrees and sunny here in Africa.

You are soooo lucky! Still NO SNOW in our neck of the woods. We were going to head north for the weekend, until we saw the storm! Now we are stuck at home with rain and fog, but no snow!

LOVE the frosty family!

OMG, you're so lucky Cynthia. I hate snow and would take rain and fog any day.

BTW, I do enjoy your blog!
