Snow in San Giorgio

snow scene

Snow has fallen on San Giorgio (see photo) for two days. Fortunately it hasn’t settled and we have been able to get about. However, this morning driving into the hills it was quite scarey going round some of the bends. We slid three times on the way up and in fact, we didn’t quite make it to our destination as on the final curve the car couldn’t grip.

To resolve these problems we are now the pround owners of some snow chains and tomorrow we will be getting a set of winter tyres which, apparently, make driving on icey, snowey and wet roads much safer. The garage will keep our normal tyres in their warehouse and then will keep the winter tyres in storage when we change back to our normal tyres.
