Sardinia Covered in Snow | Sardegna Sotto la Neve!
The last large snow storm to hit Italy was in 1985. Records are meant to be broken and this weeks snow storm has snarled traffic, closed schools and office buildings and made a big white wintery wonderland all over Italy, and now finally … Sardinia.
This Canadian couldn’t be happier. Early this morning I ventured out with camera in hand to snap this winter wonder we are having.
I toured my tiny white town for a few hours, getting strange glares from the odd traffic that passed in my direction. I was in paradise.
The animals were not happy with their new found white terrain. They moo-ed in dissatisfaction, but came running when I called.
My favourite are sheep. There is something oddly majestic about them. I’m not sure they enjoyed this winter morning even though they are dressed for it.
Even in the blinding whiteness of winter we find colour.
I walked up to our tallest mountain, and this is what I found. La Madonna keeping our town safe from a winter wonderland.
On top of ole smokey all covered in snow.
A few panoramic shots, just to get the real feel of snowy mountain tops.
I threw snowballs, made miniature snowmen and silently skied down Sardinia’s snow filled roads. It was a wonderful winter morning in the Mediterranean.
How do you like your snow?
