Snowed in Sardinia

Snowed in Sardinia

It’s hard to imagine Sardinia’s slopes, peaks and valleys covered heavily in snow, but it happened. It snowed in Sardinia!

This past week in many parts of Sardinia it snowed so hard that many people were left without heat, electricity or even a way out of their homes. It left its mark in the memories of the locals and those that had to shovel out of it. Most of the island was hit with a blanket or two of the cold white stuff, the worst hit areas are Nuoro, Fonni, and Tonara where it took far too long for help and snow plows to arrive. My thoughts, prayers and wishes for warmth and safety to those affected by the storm.

The above photo whipped by our windows a few days ago leaving a thick white blanket which quickly melted and trickled down to the sea. Such a contrast from the bright blue sky that I’ve come accustomed to in sunny Sardinia.

Did snowmageddon reach you?

    Only snow in California is in Tahoe and areas for skiing. I will have to ask my cousins in Anela if they were hit the snow. I have family in Nuoro so that was a surprise for them to wake up to! Hoping all is going well with you. Have a beautiful weekend and May God Bless!

    • Ciao Rosemarie,

      All is going great here. We were fortunate to not have been hit with all that heavy snow, we are experiencing strong winds, some in Cagliari at 120km/h! At Fonni entire roofs are blown off. My wishes and prayers to those affected and hoping for warmth and safety. Thanks for stopping by and commenting, I do appreciate it. ❤
