Kathy has been telling me about the last time she was in Greece when the weather got really cold and miserable. Well guess what folks? The woman is clearly a weather vane for crazy environmental phenominon! This afternoon as we were finishing our hike the warm sunny skies turned an ominous shade of grey and a cold breeze sprang up.
Since then a veritable storm has erupted. The rain is driving sideways. I’m not sure why it is raining – it is so chilly snow would be a more appropriate form of precipitation. The wind is screaming and moaning and carrying on like a wild monster!
We are of course now coming up with plan F for our egress out of here tomorrow. If this – than maybe that. Will the ferry run? Not too likely. The best idea so far seems to be to fall on our knees and beg someone to drive us out of here to the next village. There is no way a boat can go out in a storm like this – so says Captain George. There are no taxis and there are no busses. Walking is an option – but in this storm – yuk!
Kathy is glued to the weather app on her cell phone. Current temp 6 degrees. Strong wind advisory in effect.
We’ve filled our water bottles with hot water and have them in bed with us for warmth. All part of the adventure! Kathy has put her pretty sun dresses into the very bottom of her pack.
Stand by for further updates from the storm bound Kim and Kathy in Crete!
