When I posted the snow photos a few days ago I was wondering if the weather forecasters had got it right. They have been saying that this cold spell is going to be the worst and coldest in Italy since 1985. It seems they were right and most of Europe is very very cold at the moment!
The snow is not really a problem but the wind blowing the snow and the freezing cold temperatures are, I have just checked our thermometer and it is now reading minus 6C.
With this extreme cold due to last about another week I am just hoping that our plants and trees will survive. Nature is adaptable I know but plants here are just not used to extended periods of such cold weather. It was the winter of 1985 that killed many olive trees in parts of Italy, so I am hoping that ours will be OK.
I took a few photos earlier today to show how our garden is looking in this cold and snow.
As well as sharing my own photos I thought it might be fun to share this beautiful photo of the Lago and a few of the many snow videos I found on YouTube today, which show both the beauty and the chaos that the snow has brought to Lazio this week.
