Don't like the weather?...wait a bit.

APRIL 2007:
Italian Farmers Fret as Rivers Dry Up
Italy is considering imposing a state of emergency due to an unseasonable drought which is threatening agricultural production. But while the arid conditions might be a result of climate change, poor infrastructure is also to blame.

ROME: Rome residents were on alert Friday for possible overflowing of the Tiber river as heavy rain battering much of the country caused three more deaths, officials said.

Rescuers recovered the body of a man in southern Italy who was swept away in the heavy rains, while an elderly man died after his car was hit by a tree and another was killed in a car crash in a rainstorm, police in the southern city of Reggio Calabria said.
Weather is cyclical...ever changing...just like the size and width of a necktie.
