Sono Qui! (I Am Here!)

I am back in Tuscany for the next 8 months, to finish what I came here to start.
3 days ago it snowed for 2 days straight. Very strange for our area. This morning I just had to go to the house to check out the situation and satisfy myself that the roof hadn't caved in. On the way, I took a half an hour to get a little stuck. Then I took another half an hour to get a little more stuck. Then I spent most of the morning digging the car out.

But not without walking a long way, carrying a suitcase on my head.

When I first saw the shuttered house across the snowy field, I felt a little like Dr. Zhivago returning to Varyniko after years.
