Mezze maniche mozzarella and peas casserole

Rome is not for the snow. Snow and cold is not for us. Here we like the sun and the warm temperatures even in January or in February when usually all Europe is icing.
We are not used to snow boots, snow-chains for cars, icy roads. It's not for us and we are not able to cope with similar emergency. Yes, emergency. Becouse for us snow is not regular winter. It's an emergency. Like a big heartquake, a flood or a tsunami.
And please, if you can, don't laugh about our tragedies :) It tooks only a few centimeters of snow: no public transport, no metro, no buses, no taxi around. All schools closed becouse roman kids are not able to go to school with the snow: don't laugh please, this is Rome!
Supermarkets are empty becouse no food can reach the supermaket shelves (it's snowing, how can they?)
People remain trapped inside the train for 20 hours on inside the car on the road for 15 hours.

It was the frist snow in 26 years and we can wait now for more 30!

Spring time, we are waiting for you!

Ciao from a very unusual Rome under the snow :)
