Ice on the Puddles - 19 February 2008

Temperatures dropped to well below freezing on Symi last night. It was still -3 degrees in my garden at 07.00 this morning. The following photographs were taken on the way to work this morning. On television this morning we listened with some amazement to a BBC World reporter describing the snow in Athens as 'unseasonable'. Greece has snow to varying extents every winter, and snow falls in Athens' northern suburbs most winter. Every three or four years it also falls in central Athens and this certainly isn't the first time snow has closed the airport!

About this Blog

I sailed into Panormitis Bay, Symi, by chance one windy July day in 1993 and have been here ever since. The locals tell me that this is one of the miracles of St Michael of Panormitis. A BA graduate with majors in English, Philosophy and Classical Civilisation, the idea of living in what is to all intents and purposes an archaeological site appeals to me. Not as small as Kastellorizo, not as touristy as Rhodes, Symi is just the right size. I live on a small holding which my husband and I have reclaimed from a ruin of over-grazing and neglect and turned into a small oasis over the course of the past 22 years. I also work part-time for Symi Visitor Accommodation, helping independent travellers discover and enjoy Symi's simple pleasures for themselves.
