snow in brighton

It's been a good few years since I can recall thick, lying snow on the streets - let alone the beach - of Brighton, so I was flabbergasted to discover, shortly after I checked in to my hotel room in sunny Florence, that the British city I'd left behind was transformed by April snow. I'm annoyed I missed it, believe it or not, although still wondering if my friends might not be collaborating on some devastatingly sophisticated practical joke, manufacturing the effect with snow machines. It was only a few days ago I was there and revelling in the warm, bright evenings.

But snowing it surely is, as Vic's photos, below, seem to prove:

Amazing. Thanks Vic! My own, rather different, photos of Florence to follow in the next few days.
