Grrrrr, rats! At home with a miserable sniffy cold today. Obviously a result of the cold snap the last few days, coupled with a three hour!! (usually takes one) drive from Reggio Emilia to Bologna in the dark, snow, wind and sleet last Thursday evening, after it began to snow while I was in Reggio for a meeting. Total chaos on local roads in Reggio, and the autostrada only just barely driveable from Reggio to Modena South... Rather miserable journey, all in all, but at least I managed to get home again!!
