- Snow sweeps Greece
- Snowfall turns Greek islands white
- Heavy snowfall causes problems all over the country
The main roads north of Athens were closed because of heavy snow. A state of emergency was declared on the islands of Skopelos (Mama Mia) and Alonysos. The islands are without power or water and in some places with almost 2 metres of snow.
Villages are snowed in, schools are closed. The archeological site of Knossos in Crete is covered in snow. And the cold snap will continue for a few more days.
All we got were snowflakes but even that was exciting. The hills opposite were covered in a white blanket and the grandchildren and their parents went across to the mainland and up into the foot hills to play with the snow.
In the hills opposite Poros. Behind the very happy children you can see the sea and the peninsular of Methanon.
The girls snowman. The boys snowman had some rude parts (typical for small boys) so I'm not allowed to show you all a photo of that.
