this is awful

Not pretty – Sunday Morning

As of 09:00 Monday the ring road is being cleared using (from what I can see) a JCB® backhoe/loader. A BobCat® mini-loader is very slowly clearing the road to the cemetery. There is a funeral today. Yesterday the town used tank trucks to throw seawater on the big roads to melt the snow. The road is supposedly clear from the port to the helicopter landing zone. Temperature -2ºC.

At least there is electricity. We are expecting more snow tomorrow.

  1. ……even in a lokal Munich newspaper (Abendzeitung) they tell about
    snow in Greece and there is also a photo of Skopelos with all the snow!

  2. I’d come down to rescue you but it’ll have to be on foot! Along with you arriving on the Proteus was heavy equipment to clear roads.I hope that they are working.
