I Never Has Seen Snow

Well okay I has but not for the past three years - and two small bouts of flurries back in Roma don't count. But tonight at the Bremmer Pass I Has Seen Snow! And it was -9 on the station platform.


Brennero (Bremmer in German) is located 1,374 meters above sea level (around 4,500 ft) so it wasn't surprising that there was snow on the ground and a chill in the air. Surprisingly the streets here in Innsbruck - only 30 minutes away but 900 meters lower - are snowless. However at -7 its still cold - by Italian standards - and the forecast says snow is on the way. Guess I better button up my overcoat - or better still buy a better one!
