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!!

Seen a few pictures like this lately. Got the mother outlaw flying over from Crete this Saturday. Gotta be the only time it's likely to be warmer here than in Greece.

Had a little under a foot here on Saturday, kids just now returning to school--it's not as rare here as it is in your area (we usually get a lot of ice and a snow or two yearly) but we still go batshit when it hits.

It was awful here in Essex yesterday. We had at least an inch of snow. It was bordering on armageddon by midnight and I was seriously thinking of packing up and getting out of the country. Thankfully, by morning it had melted. Touch and go for a while though.

That fucking weather only had the fucking nerve to fucking snow on Dorset didn't it? There must have been at least a millimetre - that's about 2 foot in old money I reckon. When I got up this morning at the normal country getting up time of 5.30 our garden table had a coating of snow on it - it lasted until almost 7.30! I was just about to call out the emergency services and the grit lorries - who can't get to where we live when it snows because the roads are too iffy, fucking ironic that, probably, but I get confused when I talk about irony because I have fuck all clue what is ironic and what is sarcastic, and that statement is probably ironic - or not.

I feel for your close call with armageddon mate - it was touch and go here as well.

Lol I pissed myself at pics on twatter,barely enuff snow to write with on a car window.However just to cheer you up,the only marked police car on the island got stacked and appears to have lost its front end after crashing in the snow.If you think snow in the UK makes it all go to shit,you want to see greeks trying to drive in it.

I've seen how Greeks drive in perfect conditions so in snow must be a demolition derby.

Fucking mayhem mate. I just literally laughed out loud thinking of Greeks trying to navigate the roads in deep snow....

I was dismayed to hear about your local constabulary losing their vehicle so I contacted some RCMP colleagues of mine just across the border in British Columbia and they were kind enough to provide a "how to" video of local Canadian police operations in snow/ice. I hope this short video will benefit your cops in future snow events:

Sounds like one of they Zen doobries. Buddhist monks spend lifetimes mediating on this question. It is s fascinating question and the next time I see a chicken out of doors - you can get banged up for that at the moment 'cos of the bird flu, them swan fuckers down at Abbostbury have got the bird lurgie bad, so lock up your poultry or the feds will be bringing armageddon down on you... what? Oh yeah, the next time I see a chicken I will bung it into the river Yeo and report back to you , if it swims then it is a witch and it will be burnt, or roasted nicely.

Where do these fucking eels live? I want to see the land eels ! Do you mean snakes or slugs? If so then I am not so impressed, land eels however, I would be extremely impressed seeing those buggers.

No sorry mate I'm not having that, it's just an ordinary eel that someone has bunged on the grass. I used to catch eels when I was a kid and those fuckers can live for hours out of the water, even when you have cut their fucking heads off they still wander about all over the place for days. You can bung decapitated eels in the sink downstairs ready for tomorrow's lunch and wake up in the middle of the night to the fuckers climbing up the stairs to moan about having their bonces chopped off.

Lol,this all stems back to a documentary we saw in our stoner days,they do cross short patches of land to get to other streams/rivers,but yeah!!My mate put on a yokel accent and said "eels they live on the land" we`ve laughed about it ever since,you probably had to be there,but it became a quote amongst us for when someone was talking bullshit.!! Like I was then.

edit;oops sorry about the Lol....
