Sleet has caused extensive damages to crops and fields in Herakleion, Crete, and especially in the municipalities of Nikos Kazantzakis and Asterousia. Serious problems have also been reported in the city of Herakleion and in Thessaloniki, where dozens of basements, houses and shops flooded. In Efkarpia, people almost lost their lives when their car was washed away by the rushing waters of a torrent. The weather in Athens is fickle as well, with torrential rainfalls that caused extensive problems to traffic flow at the heart of the capital. The weather for today will be rainy with sporadic storms in the mainland and northern gales over central and northern Aegean.

This darn guy appoints himself pope replacing the newly elected pope and now we find him holed up in a bar..... :shock:
If this self appointed clown drinks up all the raki on the south coast of Crete I'm gonna see to him being de-throned, de-frocked and excommunicated :!:
ps...can you tell that I have just 2 hours left at work before we head to Crete? :mrgreen:

I'm off next friday myself, and the weather around then seems to be pretty much what I hoped for.
Can anyone on the ground confirm these weather reports, or compare them against what local reports are saying.
