After a very rainy few days, yesterday it was sometimes sunny, sometimes cloudy, and very beautiful.
And then for the surprise of the day.
Driving home from Catania I got a clear view of Mount Etna (not always easy due to views obstructed by clouds or buildings), and discovered that overnight it had become covered in snow. It is a magical sight to see a mountain transformed with its first snow cap of the season.
And it brings to mind the saying I've heard countless Catanese use: where else can you make a trip to the snow and the sea in the same day? Of course, being from Los Angeles, I think, 'hey that's our line'. Because LA is another city where you can drive to snow capped mountains and the beach in the same day, not to mention the desert!
Now I am tempted to make a family trip up to the snow....let's see if we get around to it before it melts.
