These past few weeks have been a total dream. I've been completely spoiled with Italian summer. Since this is my first summer here I'm not sure if this is normal for the region but during the day it's a perfect 75 degrees, breezy and sunny. The birds are out chirping and everything screams PICNIC TIME!!! But then 5pm hits and the storm rolls in for the night. Temperatures drop about 15-20 degrees, the wind picks up, thunder booms for a while, and rain carries on all night.
