2 inches of thunder snow at SEA LEVEL in Crete 4 days ago. Spoke to a 63 year old lady in Chania today and she said that it was a first in her lifetime. Plenty in the mountains though.

I do feel sorry for these poor old souls having snow and ice after driving all that way to feel toasty, we had a couple of zero nights a few weeks ago, and enough snow to fill a coffee cup but that's all.

Well the good news is that there's no snow or ice here near Vinaros Tony, just clear blue skies. Still the others needn't worry either, it'll be back to clear blue again in a day or two, unlike the UK.

Northern Spain has snow warnings for the next few days - careful if you are travelling up or down to or from the ports.

It's a depressing grey, damp yukky kind of day up here.
The weather is crap but the scenery is top drawer - canny beat it.

We are in Benidorm and there was snow on the hills around us today, 2 days ago we had to go in the shade on site as it was touching 26deg in the sun. That's out of the wind which has been quite blustery for the last week at times gusting and at times just a breeze. Still I would rather be here in winter, the daylight hours are already on from 8 am to 6.30 pm and rising fast and hopefully give it a few days and we will be back to normal weatherwise.

A bit cooler on the costas this morning Steve, but hopefully not for long.

Very damp and miserable here in Littleborough, although it's around 6 degrees.

Be with you soon, Barry

Seeing Herman is just down the road from you, this news is very comforting!
