Santacittarama in the snow

You may be wondering how we are coping with all the snow and freezing weather. We are doing fine, but thanks for your concern. There has been a lot of snow, and for a while it wasn't possible for vehicles to arrive without chains. However, we managed to clear the road of snow and ice just in time for the gas truck to arrive and fill up the tank, which was nearly empty. A small team of long-term lay guests are here, taking good care of the kitchen and participating in the retreat, and several people have managed to arrive bringing food offerings, in spite of the extreme conditions. Below are a few recent photos. The retreat continues, back to the silence . . .  and guess what . . . it's started snowing again ...!
