People are always surprised that it gets cold and even snows here down south in Puglia. The first year we were here it was so deep we were snowed in for two days! We’ve had a seasonally cold spell recently with frosty nights and sunny days, then on Sunday morning it snowed much to the children’s delight. But all their plans for making a snowman and having a snowball fight were unfulfilled when the sun came out and melted it all. They still had lots of fun catching snowflakes.
