It started snowing early this morning and it has continued all day. This doesn’t happen very often in Bagni di Lucca, so I went out walking around Ponte a Serraglio and up to Bagni Caldi to make the most of it. Come for a walk up the hill and back with me.
Some of these photos look black and white, but they aren’t. The snow became heavier as the day went on and while I was out walking a fog rolled in and the visibility became very poor.
The roads have been treacherous. The snow plough has had trouble keeping the road clear.
You don’t often see snow on palm trees.
There is not much use for these now.
This was as far up the hill as I went. I heard several trees cracking and falling under the weight of the snow, so I thought it was time to head home.
Le Torre disappeared completely from view seconds after this was taken.
It has been a beautiful day in Bagni di Lucca. Click here to see photos I took earlier in the day at Ponte a Serraglio.
If the roads become safe I will head to some of the other villages to see the snow there.
