Rome hadn't woken up to this in 27 years, but some say this year's flakes beat the 1985 snowfall. I certainly never remember Rome seeing anything like this before.
Here are a few images of my neighborhood and Villa Borghese, taken Saturday morning. I wish I could only portray the silence and the awe.


  1. Having some trouble commenting. Rome looks lovely covered in snow. Enjoy it while it lasts.

  2. Amazing and very pretty. It looks like a normal Minnesota winter. This year we have very little snow and only occasional painfully cold days. I hope the Romans enjoy this for its rarity. I'm sure it's a pain in the rear, though. If that guy is wearing inline skates, he's probably not too happy!

  3. Fabulous captures! These need to go in the city archives. What an unusual treat of beauty for Roma.
