Snow!

Last Friday, the snow showed at our town ,after 25 years! Rome was all white too, but couldn't go to take pictures due to the weather conditions. Snow its not an every Winter event, so our cars are not equipped to ride on the snow; therefore, it was a holiday for those whose job is in Rome!
I started taking pics of our yard, and the pine trees, among them, "Ciro's tree", as we found him as a kitten, up the tree you can see in the first pic at right. It lasted for a couple of hours; but it was fun!

Ciro's tree! How old is Ciro now?

Congratulations on the snow :) I never knew that Rome wouldn't have snow. It is icy cold and the roads are just as icy-slippery. I am just waiting for end-April, for Spring to finally arrive. Winter here is 6 months long.

Hi Juanita! Ciro will be 14 years old next June, but he is lively and playful like a kitten!
Hmm... Ok for Spring; but after come the Summer, and I do not like it!
Good night!

Wonderful photos of the snow around town. I hear this fluffy white snow is visiting many places it normally doesn't. xo

Great, Juanita! When something happens so rarely - it is so special. I hope you had fun and enjoyed the time! You are lucky winter is not so long there... But I guess all is relative and a long hot summer must be very tiring also... Take care and have a good weekend!

wow that is pretty impressive - who'd have thought - snow in Rome! Certainly a once in a life time thing it would seem... xxx
