Don't any of you dare laugh, or else.
Those white dots are snow flakes.
A dark orange (Saharan sand) cloud hovered over us and for 5 minutes we had snow flurries.
Squeals of excitement. And it was over. The stuff melted immediately so those 17 flakes were all I managed to photo.
you can have any snow we have over the next few days if you like. Sorry blogger still wont let me sign in. Hope you are well, SolReplyDelete
Hi Sol !!Delete
Better be quick. It will be 22o by Saturday. Very strange. I wouldn't mind enough to make snowman.
All well here
At least you're not sniffing cocaine.😊 How odd.ReplyDelete
I wouldn't have left those flakes if it was cocaine. That'd be quite a few euros worthDelete
Tee hee... oops, sorry!ReplyDelete
Saharan sand and snow in the same sentence must be a first Linda!ReplyDelete
Yeh, you're right. But it was so weird. instead of a black cloud it was a bright orange. Couldn't have been Saharan sand, that comes from the south. Snow I presume comes from north or west up there in the Balkans.Delete
If a snowflake lands in the hills around here it makes front page news.ReplyDelete
Not laughing. If it snowed here I would be exactly the sameReplyDelete
It did actually snow here I was driving home from picking up the kids. It hit my windshield and slid down.
I’m surprised you didn’t hear the squeals of delight where you are lol
So that's what that squealing noise was lol. So darn exciting. Wish ours had stayed a little longer. It does now and again.Delete
Ahh, bless your heart. When we are all allowed to travel again, you should come here and be excited for more than just a few seconds!ReplyDelete
I do find it odd that Saharan clouds can bring snow! -Jenn
I'd go onto overdrive with yours!Delete
When we see orange clouds we immediately think desert-dust but it just couldn't have been. Those are hot dry winds.
Must have been a sun burst....or something. Down on the waterfront there was blue sky and no flurries
Squeals of excitement sound like my reaction to snow - I so seldom ever see any, that I am always excited by it. Pity it melted so fast.ReplyDelete
A few years ago the road up the mountain there was enough to close our mountain road overnight and the next day enough for the kids to come up and build a snowman. Doesn't happen oftenDelete
No laughing here, I have to admit to using 2 rolls of 36 exposure film, back in the days of film, when we had snow one day at home! It was an exciting time!! Shame yours melted so fast. Snow is exciting for those of us who do not have to live in it!ReplyDelete
You hit the nail on the head. It's only exciting for those who don't have to live with it. But ohhh, what tales to tell our grandchildren!Delete
Stay home, don't drive the car, get out the snow plough, wrap up warm, and (if you can get to a nearby shop) buy plenty of supplies. It looks as if you could be snowed in for weeks.ReplyDelete
Thank goodness we've still got plenty of macaroni and a pile of loo rolls!Delete
Now and again we get just a little more.
About 15 years ago I drove home one night in a snow 'storm' after babysitting grandchildren. It was coming down so thick the windshield wipers only just cleared a small space for me to see. That was at sea level too.
All gone by next morning.
I understand you so much, I think this is the maximum amount of snow I have ever seen here.ReplyDelete
Ha, you understand completely Yael. We stand at the window peering out , hoping to spy one little snowflakeDelete
No snow here in the south of england but lots up north. A few flakes is all you need, lolReplyDelete
I agree. A flurry of white flakes is enough but they have to sit around long enough for me to take a photo 😄Delete
I'm surprised you get so little snow as you're not far from the mainland.We were snowed in when we first arrived in Kifissia in the winter of 1980 / 81 and husband had to abandon his car and walk home from work - we were up higher I suppose and could see mountains behind us. There has been snow in Crete but mainly up near Chania and the White Mountains though I think higher parts of the Lassithi Plateau has had some.ReplyDelete
Oh 80 and 81!!! Wonderful years. I had my two girls. I remember taking one of them out in a pushchair to see the snow and being told off by an old lady who told she would get pneumonia . Typical.Delete
Was it 81 too that we had the big earthquake? We lived on the 6th floor and boy did it away.
And Crete! 86 we moved down to Sounds for three years. The first year we had snow there too
Oh, you know all about Greece!! 😃😃
My husband was there for the big earthquake, yes it would have been early 81 as S was still a babe in arms, but I'd gone back to UK with S for a few weeks. He'd got up to see what was going on as the whole room shook and everyone in the apartment block had run outside so lots of noise going on and then he decided to go back to bed - typical J as very little will keep him from his sleep. When I got back we had lots of aftershocks which were a bit strange. It was a bad one though with people killed and quite a lot of damage to buildings I think towards Corinth Canal. I've never been to Souda Bay but hope we will go there on day.Delete
That's kinda cool, I thought you would get alot more snow there actually.ReplyDelete
Sometimes we get heavy snow here. Once every 5 years or so . Doesn't stay for long though. The sun always shines again pretty quickly.Delete
