March, crazy month, but in 1985...
Today, coming here at the Hotel Mario's to work like every single day, it started to snow, a light snow,but a real cold March snow.In Italy we use to say March is the craziest month of the year, because it usually rain one day and the day after is sunny and hot. The differences are given from the clouds and the water, but not for the SNOW.Firenze is a beautiful city, romantic too and if you are just visitors could be nice to stay in Florence when is white.
The last big snowfall was before last Christmas, but the biggest one was in 1985, more than 25 years ago.What did it happen?The Arno river froze solid that year,for the first time since 1929.The Tuscan spring is often lazy, taking its time in arriving. Though by mid-March the days are longer, so we have to wait only for a little bit and we'll have, im sure, a very very hot Spring and of course Summer.I invite everybody to come in Florence during April and May, that in my opionion, are the most fantastic months of the year.
