Freak Blizzard Hits Catania!

Holy Cannoli!

As you probably know, Sicily has a very mild climate much like Southern California's. 

Yesterday we were actually soaking up the sun's rays out on our patio.

Today as we walked out of Savia's pasticceria (cannolo only 1.80 euro today as opposed to the 2 euros the other day), we were ambushed by a freak blizzard the likes of which I have not seen since a similar storm hit the Cafe du Monde in New Orleans about two years ago the night before the Saints vs. 49ers game. It was a winter wonderland as you can see in the picture above.
