Snow in Florence is rare. But it does frost the Duomo every few years for a day or two.
While Tuscan Traveler was enjoying the sun on the Pacific Ocean on the coast of Chile in 2005, snow fell on Florence.
Again in 2008, this time the sun, but not the warmth, was in Santa Fe, NewMexico, and snow amazed tourists on the Ponte Vecchio.
Of course, the locals say, “This is nothing like the time in 1985 – the Arno froze solid that year, you know.”
Now in the first days of 2009, Tuscan Traveler is waiting for snow in Florence.
HAPPY NEW YEAR !
