Today we had our first real taste of winter. The temperature stayed around 6 degrees for most of the day and it rained…a perfect day for a drive in the mountains.
There has been snow on Prato Fiorito, making it look gorgeous.
As we climbed higher towards Montefegatesi the snow was falling quite heavily.
Montefegatesi looks great at any time, but a dusting of snow makes it look even better.
We went for a short walk around the village. The temperature up there was zero.
There are storms all around us again tonight. Perhaps there will be even more snow tomorrow.

Looking nice with a little bit of snow. We have 13 below zero at the moment, don’t like that too much..
In our village it is about 6 degrees, which is not too bad.
Gorgeous! I love the colors of winter.
Beautiful! But the bad weather is not confined to Italy at the moment. Raining cats and dogs here. And “the rain in Spain does not stay mainly in the plain”. I can assure you….
It is raining here again today, but it is not too cold. Winter is on its way.
Thanks for a great day Debra. An afternoon in the snow was the perfect end to our holiday.
It doesn’t snow all that often in the villages. You were lucky to see it.
Snow already! Beautiful, but I hope this cold goes aŵay again soon, I’m not ready for full-on winter yet.
I think this is just a sample of what is to come. I’m sure it will warm up in a few days.
To those of us that don’t live with snow, or even see snow fall, it looks idyllic..
I know. I didn’t see snow until I was in my 30s. I grew up in sub tropical Brisbane. I find the snow delightful, but it can be a real pest if it stays too long.
Wonderful I love the snow! Wish I was there sitting in front of a roaring fire with good friends sharing stories and cups of mulberry wine. Life is grand with simple pleasures. Enjoy
Debbie and thank you for the news and photos. I am currently waiting for Lake Tahoe snow.
Rug up and enjoy the spectacle Deb! Italy feels so far away right now…
and still fa freddo !! waiting for spring 🙂
It looks beautiful! We have a house in Ponte Coccia, 15 mins drive up the SS12 from Bagni di Lucca, so love your site to keep us up to date with local news, particularly the weather reports! Can’t wait to return in January 2014 – for more snow no doubt
It is very cold here right now. Today we had a ferocious wind and now we have some rain. No doubt there will be snow on the mountains tonight.
I am planning my first visit march 2014. What can I expect in weather and tourists?
The weather could be anything from warm and sunny to rain or snow. March shouldn’t be as cold as February, but we have been known to have snow in March. There will be few tourists about in March. Easter is usually when the first tourists appear.
