If it is the weekend in Rome, it must be snowing

Jump to last reply

These poor folks do not need any more of this weather. Yep, it is Friday and it has been snowing again for about 6 hours (now about 8pm). You go by even the "tourist" cafes in places like Piazza Rotonda and there are very few people in the square, much less eating outside. Go to a side street and they are vacant.

I look out my window at the 3 cafes at my location, no people, heavy snow crushing the canopies, the wait staff trying their hardest to keep the snow off and not allow the tops to collapse. This is exactly what happened last weekend, weather goes to hell and the tourists don't come out. Just what a country in financial trouble needs.

Hopefully it gets better in the next week or so.
