Polar Vortex hits Northern Sardinia

Winter in Sardinia is the polar opposite of its summertime climate. Thick fog, whipping winds and relentless rain make it impossible to see the light of day, for days and days.

This is winter in Sardinia my friends.

Who’s dreaming of a bright, blue summer?

  1. I am! This is the coldest winter in Toronto that I remember and I’ve lived here over 20 years.

  2. Anna says:

    I’m actually looking forward to this weekend’s massive snowfall! Finally a proper Russian winter!

  3. I got on a plane this morning in 29 degrees (C) heat, and when I got off it was 8 degrees. Still in shock.

    The paradise has its negative side, obviously!

  7. You’re not alone. It’s been raining for days up here in the Veneto.

    I am back in Australia for a while. It is gorgeous here. I have just had a swim in the pool and next week we are off to the beach…sorry. I was completely sick of the rain in Italy.

    Summer sounds great but I am enjoying this cold spell while I can! Have a great day! Your dreams will come true sooner than you think! Have a wonderful day!

  10. Each winter I just can’t wait to get it over with. We’ve had a strange one so far in the UK. It has been raining since the 9th December (according to the experts) and it is not going to change at least until the end of Feb. Rain has brought flooding aplenty but temperatures of around 6 to 10 degrees. We could conceivably go into Spring without having had our usual cold winter at all. Weird.
