After the heavy snowfall that started falling in the afternoon of 3rd February, we woke up to a 'snow-white' day on Saturday. It gained speed, slowed down and stopped but the town remained blanketed since then. I had never seen so much snow since I moved to Italy. Either it didn't snow or it would just touch us slightly as passing by.
There seems to be another cold wave and snowfall waiting for us from Friday.
Where has the global warming gone!!? :)
Following the latest meteorological reports, there is no need to noodle over which recipe to post next anymore.
Nothing tastes better than a good warm soup on a cold day!! Brrr!!
