Well we are waiting (with all of Florence) for Spring to show up! Thursday we had a pretty good hail storm with pea sized hail raining down for several minutes and emptying the piazzas in a flash. Today after a sunny start the wind picked up, the temperature plummeted, and the snow was flying. There were reports of snow all around the higher elevations and we had some flurries right in town late in the afternoon. From what I am hearing from Florentines this has been the coldest Winter in years - not exactly what we were expecting - I think everyone in Tuscany is looking forward to some warmer weather and some more sun.
