Crete in the Snow!

It's been snowing across nearly all of Crete today.

Just had a photo forwarded of my car parked up with my neighbours near Pigi, Rethymnon...the sun shade covering them is resting on the car roofs, they had 10cms overnight and it was still coming down at 08.30.

Here in the frozen North, it was up to 9c at 15.00hrs with few clouds, blue skies and sunshine. My snowblower is at the ready, but going on the last few years I have not needed it to dig the driveway out.

I feel so sorry for the elderly, and those who can not afford the oil to keep warm, over there, it must be a nightmare.

View from my porch on Sunday 8 January 2017. It snowed steadily through the night and most of the day. Large flakes of very wet snow. Today it is sunny so it is starting to melt already.
