Rain. How surprising! NOT. I remember quite a bit of rain in the year I lived in Florence.

We just had rain camping on a holiday weekend. A sign in the visitor center up the mountain said "Weather: Today: rain and snow. Tomorrow: snow and rain."

Wow - is that a monastery on top of the mountain ? Talk about getting away from it all! *pant pant* Nice shot.
