It is snowing heavily all over Italy. Yesterday Rome was paralyzed by 10cm of snow. Temperature is also very low, -3 to -10 from Milano to Napoli. Snowing was very heavy in Emilia-Romagna: Modena, Bologna, Cesena, Forli, etc., including the area of Maranello.
Next week temperatures will remain quite low. Not the best time to drive here.

Ciao
Mauro

Here in Tokyo, it is very cold also. Northern Japan is getting one of the worst winter storm and snow with some areas over three meters of snow !

Maranello was a lot like that when we arrived there in Fled 5. Not quite as bad as those pics.

Snow is all good though... I'm off to Chamonix in the morning for a week's snowboarding with the brother and a few friends. Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow...

Ciao Mauro,

Yeah, you guys are definitely having some bad snowfall there this year. I have family that live in Rome, Bari and Modane. One of my cousin's from Rome sent me pics yesterday of the snow they've had, it's unreal.

Ciao Mike, yes that's true, although it was common to have heavy snowing in the last few winters, mainly in the Appennine between Tuscany and Emilia-Romagna. Quite unusual to have snow in Rome, Napoli and Puglia although.

Ciao
Mauro

Mike- Great photos, thanks. When it snows in Naples, it is a really bad winter. I imagine they are about as good at driving in snow as those in South Texas.

Hi Taz, well even the Romans are bad enough on ice and snow, you can image the Neapolitans!
Ciao
