Well, it's the day after the first snow and, even though the snow stopped falling sometime
around midnight, it has left a beautiful image for all people in Lucca to wake up to. It is still very cold and by the time we woke up the skies was still very overcast. Mary took some photos of her beloved mountain. Last night we put some photos onto 'Facebook’ to show the first moments of snow.
