Been a bit quiet these last few days,here is why On the mainland close to us and the two neighbouring islands the govt has declared a state of emergency,over a meter of snow and no power.I went through that 15 years ago 5 days no electricity in sub freezing conditions,it aint pretty! This year we were spared,the power stayed on & we only had a couple of feet of snow,I can tell you it aint normal for a greek island.5days with no mains water,lucky I have a pond I can raid to be able to flush the toilet and boil a 10 lt stockpot of water to stand in and have a sponge down every couple of days.Its fucking grim I tell you,but so far power and internet has survived and a big thaw is meant to occurr later,infact my mains water unfroze this morning,the water heater is on,my fire is lit and I am going to have the most beautiful long hot shower&try and unknot my hair when I finally get to wash it!! I wanted to live out of the way a little bit not off the grid!!! Its actually quite enjoyable on a basic level being challenged to survive,but once a decade is enough!!
