It's Monday afternoon and the snow has started falling again. The temperature in the last few days have been as low as -8C (17F). Looking out the window at work, we can see the gridlock caused by the white stuff. The office is rather quiet now as people have left early in order to actually make it home at a decent time tonight. I remember when we used to live in Abbiategrasso and it took us over 3 hours to get to work one morning because of the snow. There's a good chance we're walking home this evening.
