Well... as it was Marathon Mans birthday yesterday, we went out to dinner... at 7.40pm it was minus 3... at 1.00am it had dropped to minus 7.... I figure that between 1.00am and say 5.am it would have dropped by at least another 2 - 3 dg... sorry guys, I was not about to leave my warm bed to check..but I guess we would have gone down to minus 9 - minus 10.
We are seriously considering ice skates now for the pool, its completely frozen over, no water in the downstairs bathroom and laundry room but fortunately the rest of the supply is OK.
Keep warm everyone!

Like everyone else we have had interruptions in the water supply. I think its being turned off in Sinarades at night to stop the village pumps/pipes from freezing, which seems to be working so far (touch wood).
Went for a walk up Aerostatos yesterday to collect pine cones to light the fire with (better than any firelighter) and there was still thick frost and ice on the ground in the shade.
The sun is lovely and I am getting a lovely tan on my face from walking in it. Unfortunately my face is the only part of my body being exposed in this cold weather.
It has been freezing in the wind or once you step out of the sun into the shade. I bought some ski thermals from Lidl a few weeks ago and they have been my best purchase ever!
Last week I invested in a fake fur lined fleecy jacket from the Chinese shop sale and its perfect for layering with all my jumpers, thermals, leggings and boots, not to mention the pashmina around my neck and face and thermal gloves. Roll on summer!

Well - how selfish can you get Angie Fancy not leaving your bed in order to keep us all up-to-date with the weather conditions
Only joking - Happy Birthday to Marathon Man, hope you had a great evening.
Look on the bright side - with all the ice-skating practice you will be able to do you can put in for the next season of "Dancing on Ice" lol

The thermometer at the top of this page is pretty accurate by my thermometer's reckoning (which is in the Loustri area). My thermometer showed a minimum of zero degrees Celsius three nights ago. Colder than we normally expect in winter here.
