    280cm in Urbino and Still Snowing

    We are in the middle of a blizzard in Urbino, Italy. It started snowing January 31. We had 2 days (Wednesday and Thursday) when it subsided. Friday morning around 3AM it started again and it has not stopped. In total I am told we have around 280cm of snow and it is still snowing. The town has declared a Natural Disaster. We are blockaded in the house and in our neighborhood. Everyone is in fear of roofs caving in since there are a number that have already down just that. In all, we are really just trying to keep our senses of humor in all this. Of all the pictures, the one my boyfriend took of me this morning is a testament to what is happening here. There is so much snow that we cannot throw it anywhere. There was waist-high snow when I opened the door, so I used my body to make a path out.
