Thanks for all the humidity answers, it makes sense now!

We do run a dehumidifier (it came with the apartement) 14 hours a day. In any case, I cannot understand how its snowing in Rome and Bologna (where a friend lives) and its not here in Milano, lol!

But is a clear day now and crisp and fresh and really nice :)

it's snowing again, 20% chance and it is snowing, on top of icy packed down snow. The way it looks it will be next week before I could get out, I have a hugh hill to climb to get to the black top road.

Phew... I thought a post I had posted on a different thread had been deleted by an admin because it was totally off the point or deemed inadmissible for some other reason.

Anway, it's getting colder and colder... 2C this morning. Yet to see the bird bath and bowls of water for the cats frozen. It does happen, but very rarely. They're still forecasting snow for tomorrow, however.

Pretty much the same here in Rome, after the hail storm yesterday evening, the temperature took a nose dive. It is freezing now!!
We just saw mimosa blooming last week, 2 months early, poor guys they must be freezing too!! I was just thinking with the warm winter we may be able to get our hands on those wonderful spring vegetables early,(asparagus, artichokes...) I hope the crop won't get messed up with this sudden change of the weather!!

Yes, we had artichokes and asparagus in the shops at the weekend in Milan, but the crops must be suffering now :(

We got a little bit more snow......its in the mid 20's and the roads are icy. Today is the first time I actually put my vehicle in 4 wheel drive so far this winter. I guess its suppose to get colder though. I can't wait for spring.

We've had cold weather in Utah for several weeks now, and no end in sight. Highs in 20's lows around 0. Can't wait for spring!

It is 35 degrees F. at 9:00 pm. That is just amazing. It has been so cold lately. We have had any measurable precipitation for weeks now. As much as I don't miss shoveling snow, it is going to be a long, hot, dry summer if we don't receive some soon. If we don't get some precipitation at this rate this January is going to be the driest on record for this area.

Apparently minus 6ºC during the night here. The bird bath is frozen, and keeps refreezing if I put new water in. The cats don't want to go out but are getting stir crazy. One of them is a five-month-old kitten, so she's driving the others nuts.

But still no snow. The place we're moving to in a couple of months is apparently under a foot of snow and rising...
