The long and winding road

Tuesday 09.12 hours


The long and winding road we dug to the asphalt is almost gone. Snowed under again. We did manage this morning to clear the path out of the house and towards the animals. We are almost back to square one. Last night it started snowing again and a lot has fallen. The small road outside our house is free but what about the rest of the road towards the asphalt? We will have to wait and see when it stops snowing.

The weather forecasts on the television are all different so we have to see it with our own eyes!

Skopelosnews called the vice mayor M. Klonaris last night (on Monday) and she told us that machines are working everywhere and they were trying to get the road from Pefkias to Raches cleared. Last night they had reached the church Agia Paraskevi. Two meters high snow on the road. The machines also tried to get up the road from the end of the ring road near Milos to the road towards Glysteri but they failed. It was too slippery.

There are quite a few families who are starting to have problems with water, food etc. Hopefully they can get out of their house soon and get groceries.

Proteus ferryboat landed in Alonissos yesterday afternoon after a very rough ride. On the boat were electricity personnel who can help with re-installing of the electricity on the island. Thank God Skopelos has electricity!
