That is what we are all trying to figure out as we in Italy scour three different websites, Sky TV, Rai1 weather channels and our favorite radio station. I always find it slightly amusing and just about as frustrating that in an age where we can make incredibly small cell phones, buttery soft leather and delectable desserts with no calories – that we can’t predict the weather from one day to the next.
I can positively confirm that I have found a new plus in my recent interest in soccer and the local Series A football team Fiorentina – in the last two weeks we have gotten more info on the weather previsions from the “Lega” (the Italian sports commission) than from other news source. Since most stadiums are not covered in Italy, a little or a lot of snow can mean a cancelled game. So if I want to know what to expect on Saturday all I need to do is check out the game schedule…this weekend the game is in jeopardy thus I can deduce that there is a serious chance of more snow.
Not that this is good news, in fact my DH’s first reaction was “oh no what are we going to do?”. You might think that this comment means – we are going to be snowed in with no food, electricity and heating – but what he is really saying is “there is no game to watch on Sunday…I could just stay in bed and wake up on Monday morning.”
Well – stay tuned to find out if the promise of snow in the Tuscany holds true…
