Rain Rain Rain ...

Its been ten days of it ...

Apparently there are another two days to go. Hopefully the long grey cloud, will lift enough tomorrow for the Athens flight to try to make it.

Passengers are holed up in the Holiday Inn at Athens after today's OLympicAir non arrival.

Apparently the radar unit on Skopelos is still down, due to the weather damage. Aircraft can only approach visually, If they cannot see the island runway due to the low cloud cover, then they cannot land.

Since the recent snow storms its becoming a regular occurrence. However SkopelosNews report that the army and engineers are now on the island, and making serious attempts to restore communication links. Read more click here ...

Its not very pleasant, for those roughing it out in damp homes.  But there is a chorus of 'would rather be there than here' on the forums, from the summer travelers, who for sure, do not know, what it is really like ...
