It looks as incongruous as the snow in Astoria the past couple of years. It's fun for awhile. I love the picture of the snow falling in the top photo, and of couse snow on palm trees!

Ladies and gentlemen, the Mayor of Livorno in his best winter suit! Il sindaco bianco!

Snow--how exciting! Lucky you!
From all those photos it looks like you enjoyed walking around in the snow.
And it's enough to close half a bridge.
Enjoy it while you can.

I heard it on the news yesterday evening, they said the airport in Florence was closed and that it even snowed in Capri! Lol, it's snowing here too but I won't have time to take photos, enjoy it while it lasts! Love that snowman!

I guess you might end up with a white Christmas this year?
it looks so clean and pretty.
Great fun for the kids, and perhaps fun for the car drivers too?

Glad you some snow finally!

Jack said...

Like others, the snow on the palm trees seems off to me. But, I have seen winter scenes in Tuscany, so I do know that you folks get snow there. But, palm trees and snow . . . ?

Kaori said...

Oh Wow! All of a sudden it's winter there! Very much like the snowman :-D

I THOUGHT I remembered seeing palm trees in Livorno before... so the snow seems quite out of place. The snowman looks like he's had a few too many glasses of seasonal cheer... :-)
