Snowflakes here, Snowflakes there ...

Snowflakes Snowflakes everywhere ...


Here is a video, recorded this morning. Shared by kind permission of my friend Νικος Μπαντιδος from the Mythos cafe ...


Now lets hope he nipped inside for a nice hot coffee afterwards ...

Skiathos residents advised to stay indoors, and  only leave if their vehicles have snow chains fitted. Many are reporting frozen pipes, and apart from melting the snow no water. Conditions remain icy and temperatures have remained around freezing all day, and below freezing out of town.

The mayor advises all schools on Skiathos will be closed on Monday 9th January


State of emergency declared on both Skopelos and Alonissos islands after 1m of snow blocking roads and the port. The Proteus ferry made it to Glossa, then went on to Agontas to get Skopelites home. They were transfered to Skopelos town by the fire Brigade.

Where conditions, are somewhat more difficult ...




For now it seems Skiathos has had another lucky escape ...
