Snow In Rome ?

I don’t think the Romans ever had to deal with snow … at least not in Rome proper. And if they did get some .. well, it wasn’t much. However, you have to wonder what they might have done if the snow was high enough to cover the first tier of the coliseum or half way up one of the many aquaducts feeding water to the city. Here’s a couple pictures of my yard and the snow doing just that. Yes, on a smaller scale, of course, but … well, there it is. And, that lump in the lower left of the first picture is a small triumphal arch … gone !!

And another to show how much is covered …..

And it’s only the start of February … two more months of potential heavy snowfall … just great !!
