Wow, these are fascinating photos!

It must be completely surreal for the citizens of Rome (and most of Europe!) to have to worry about snow and ice. I think I had heard that this is the first time it has snowed in Rome in decades?

Seems so strange that Europe and Asia are getting slammed by winter this year...and here in North America, winter has been basically nonexistent!

Despite the problems such an amount of snow and ice can cause in Rome, it sure looks lovely!

Yes, that's so

The last big snowfall was on February '86 .. about 20 cm of snow on the ground.

Instead this year it has snowed four days (and I think this could be one of the snowiest February in Rome's history) .. 3rd - 4th February / 10th - 11th February

I don't know if I will enjoy again this terrific experience, but I really hope so!

Nice photos. Here in Finland we have snow every year, some winters it doesn't stay in the ground but every winter we have snow. Here where I live we have about 50 cm snow but it is not big deal. So it funny that in Rome people are so excited such a normal thing like snow.

Yeah, it's the same way here in Minnesota (Midwestern US). We always get snow in the winter—it's normal for there to be one meter of snow on the ground from November to April. It's always funny to see how places that don't normally get snow react to it.

Snowfall itself is not that unusual in Rome. The duration and intensity of this one was quite striking for roman standards

It maybe normal in Finland, but it isn't that normal in Rome. As a matter of fact, snow isn't normal in most of the world.
In almost all Latin America, Africa and Australia snow is non existent, in some areas is a rare occurrence and only in a few places of these continents it is something common.
In South Asia (where most people of that continent live) it is also virtually non existent, with only a few places, due to altitude, getting it. It is also rare or non existent in a big part of the U.S. and southern Europe.
The only places that get snow regularly are northern US and all Canada, Northern Europe and Asia, the southern point of South America, obviusly Antartida (but nobody lives there permanently) and some other places scattered all over the world due to altitude.
I bet most people in the world have never seen snow (myself never seen it)
