For those wondering if there is normally snow falling in Greece. Yes there is always snow in Greece, but normally not covering the whole country. Greece is 80% mountains, one of the top 2 most mountainous nations in Europe with 20% of all of Europe's Ultra peak mountains lying in Greece. So these regions usually gets a lot of snow (8 meters of snow can be common in the mountains). On the NASA world map live data you can sea that Greece had snow all over it's mountains throughout the country in beginning of december already. So Greece has 2 months of snow now. Just not in the lowlands at the sea. And the more south you go in Greece, the less the propability is to find snow in the lowlands. Also. Greece's most southern spot in Crete with 5 mountain ranges also always has snow in the winter. The most southern spot in Europe to ski and eat heavenly food at the end of the day

Wow. Isn't this an odd occurence for the Med? Hope they had enough fuel to keep warm! The electric vehicles would no doubt be an eye opener about being stuck for many hours. Something EV owners here in the US are discovering.

All the snow are disappearing in Norway, so you're welcome...
But since we are prepared we would love to trade, heavy constant rain in exchange for the snow :)

I'm french speaker and the translation they wrote about what that passenger going to Paris was saying makes no sense. He's just saying he's been having hard time to reach the airport authority until now and that he hopes to be fortunate enough to get a new fly by tomorrow. Like, he never mentions sleeping miserably on the floor ^^''

Any comment from Greta? Most countries would welcome higher temperatures at the moment.

*"И будут знамения в солнце и луне и звёздах, а на земле уныние народов и недоумение ... люди будут издыхать от страха и ожидания бедствий, грядущих на вселенную, ибо силы небесные поколеблются, и тогда увидят СЫНА ЧЕЛОВЕЧЕСКОГО, грядущего на облаке с силою и славою великою. Когда же начнёт это сбываться, тогда поднимите головы ваши, потому что приближается избавление ваше".*

Father in Heaven, & is seated at the right hand of GOD, Call upon His
Holy name, confess your sins, be born again in Christ and be SAVED.
