Cold. What cold ?

Woke up this morning to a blast of bitter arctic air sweeping down from the alps. It has blown away all the clouds leaving wonderful views across into Tuscany and east into the Marche, but boy is it cold. The fires and heating are racing away in the house which doesn't do much for our carbon footprint but is a necessity today. Hilltop living is wonderful but for two or three days a year we are exposed to the full force of the storms rushing down the Tiber valley. Naturally, while we are complaining about the cold the two boyz are lapping it up and having the time of their lives. If you have doubled layer thick fur this is your element - the more severe the cold and the stronger the wind all the better !
