Guess it deserves its own thread.

“There are some famous pictures of a 1927 freeze-up And according to the Cambridge Encyclopedia of the Sun by Kenneth R. Lang, during Europe’s “Little Ice Age”, Venice’s canals regularly froze over.

Famed historian Will Durant wrote that the winter of 1708-1709 was one of Europe’s worst in centuries and froze the laguna solid.

No, snow isn't that rare there. I saw snowy pics of Rome from last winter I think. Maybe it's the first time in 25 years they have that much snow.

Here in the countryside rivers are starting to freeze over.

Canals in Venice freezing over? Bring it! It's my kind of thing, and I hope it becomes a regular occurrence . It is interesting that they're freezing over now and it was more common in centuries past.

I've noticed a loose pattern that whenever it's very mild in East/NE USA it's colder than normal in western Europe. Something in that?
