Let in Snow – Islander’s viewfinder

I’m sure you have all seen snow pictures before! Some of you, on more northern climates, may be sick of it already! Have you ever seen it on a Greek island however?

It is hard to imagine it I know! We all tend to always think of deep blue seas and whitewashed cute houses. Sun bathed with colourful flowerbeds outside. Well, we do get snow and rather a lot of it when it happens. Over the last 15-20 years, it has become a more frequent visitor. Knocking on our door every other winter, or even every winter.

It has been at least 20 years since we have seen this much snow in Skopelos Island. Especially in town and at 0 meters above sea level.

I’m not so lucky this time around and missing this white display of tranquility. I never thought that while taking some time off on mainland Greece, I would miss this spectacular display of ‘White on Blue’.

Here is a collection of friend’s pictures that I manage to collect and display for you – enjoy!

      That’s great Cindy 🙂 Where about will you be going if you don’t mind me asking? I hope its not Northern Greece, since it will still be early for warm, sunny days.


  3. Goodness, Skopelos sure got a lot. It looks quite magical but I hope everyone was safe.

      Hi, after some ‘Super Puma’ helicopter rescues of some people stranded in the country, all was safe. With such a heave show fall, (and it was really heavy), the trees are going to be suffering for a while. Let alone all those poor flowers that died a ghastly death!
