"... call it what you want ...". I call it weather or climate depending on the period under discussion.
I've simply stated what I've observed and been told by local residents who have lived in the area all their lives (and I guess that the youngest of those is 50+ and I, too, know what happens to rain and snow after it lands but thanks for the revision lesson, Dave.
As it happens, I spent some time last Thursday wandering around parts of Aptera, including the Roman site - both the main area with the cisterns and ruined bathhouses and the remains of the villa. The only mud I had to avoid was in the tracks of heavy lorries carting soil from new excavation areas. Everywhere else I was able to kneel down (to photograph flowers etc.) without getting muddy or even damp. Not really significant, though: just one observation at a random time.
Also, I trust you're not suggesting that Crete has no variety of terrain and geology. I've always felt that the island changes so much in its topography, geology and landscape that if one travels about 30Km in any direction it could be a different island. As for rain and snow falling randomly where it chooses, I think you'll find with a little research, that you're mistaken. For instance, worldwide, where there are mountains there tends to be more rainfall on the downwind side of the ranges than on the upwind side. Warm clouds contain more water vapour than cold ones: the prevailing wind blows clouds towards mountains which cause upward air currents, clouds rise, get colder, water vapour condenses, falls to earth. That time clouds are further to the downwind side than the upwind side so where does more water land? Of course there are other factors and different meteorological event that cause rain and snow and different results on the ground because of differences in geology.
Still, that's enough: I have no wish to lecture nor do I intend to continue a discussion with someone who "knows" they're right and seems determined to have the last word regardless of the opinions and experience of others. I have more interesting things to do.
