We've had the cyclone, or "hurricane" as Sicilians termed it and now we have anticyclone "Hannibal" from North Africa, which has brought with it a temperature of 30°C in Sicily today.  

Naturally, one of Mr Fargione's amarena and pineapple ice creams was in order, served with a sublime dark chocolate wafer:

Don't worry if you're in Northern Europe - "Hannibal" is coming your way, too, it seems.  The Germans named it "Ignaz" but, "We saw it first and it's called Hannibal", an Italian meteorologist proudly told La Sicilia Online.

Looks delicious!! I'm looking forward to 'Hannibal' arriving (even though the name still amuses me), we could do with some sun up here after the weather we've had recently!

We certainly are getting bad weather for the time of year without a cyclone!

Hope it brings you some sunshine up there, Nerys. Yes, I hear it's very cold there, jams. Hope it improves for you soon.

Am I imagining it or is your header pic getting larger and larger and larger? Or was it something I drank?

Probably a bit of both, James!
