The Cassaro, aka Corso Vittorio Emanuele, Palermo's oldest and grandest boulevard, was a river today, and the Madonie mountain town of Gangi had to contend with a thick layer of hailstones. Really odd weather.

Still snowing in Sicily

Sicily got hit with up to three feet of snow in the mountain towns. Today in La Repubblica I found this video by a video artist in Gangi in the Madonie Mountains who sent his camera up on a drone to film the snow-covered red rooftops. What a wonderful job he did. It is so gorgeous I sent him a fan letter on Twitter. Video by Ivan Mocciaro of Gangi. Click on the caption to see the short video. PLEASE watch it full screen.
