The adjectives I'd use to describe this weather are not fit for print! Here in Sitia we've had nearly 24 hours of violent northerly winds and rain/hail to go with them. Our large dog went base over apex when I took him out this morning, and I was nearly knocked off my feet as well. Our hallway has resembled a lake, as seals round the front door inadequate/non-existent, and part of the solar panel has just blown off - aargh! Just hope the immersion heater still works as the prospect of no hot water is not appealing!
The first two look like the old beach area to the east of the harbour looking back towards the town from the far end.
Just been talking to some friends who are staying in Chania at the moment. They said that the police had blocked off entry to the harbour area this morning. Tavernas/cafes were taking in everything and taking down screens that might get blown away.
As I said, cool photo's - doesn't mean I necessarily want to be out there in it all!! I have witnessed torrential rain and wind when we were over a couple of years ago in the February but not quite to the extent shown in the pictures!!
Definitely one of those duvet days that our friends keep saying they have during the winter!!
