This is what we woke up to. It was so quiet and peaceful.
Belli in the snow.
Maritino was the first to venture out and captured this gorgeous shot of the Tiber Island.
St. Peter's is so high, there's snow on it!
Trastevere in the snow
I didn't realize that I wanted to go sledding until I saw all the other kids doing it (in the Circus Maximus).
Lots of snowball fights going on at the Colosseum.
Can barely recognize the Roman Forum.
Lovely, snowy pines of Rome.
I came, I saw, I got snowed on.
Pièce de resistance
Although, inch per inch we got more snow this time around (my guess is 5-6 inches, quite a lot for here) I was much more thrilled when it snowed in 2010, simply because it hadn't happened for nearly a quarter of a century. Plus, in 2010 I was out when it was (very heavily) coming down, whereas most of the snow fell over night this year. If you missed my photos from last time, when I ran to the Pantheon the moment I woke up to see the snow falling through the occulus (although my poor camera had a hard time capturing it), you can find them here.
