After 30 years without snowfall, the island of Skopelos, now covered by one meter of snow, is in a state of emergency. Ferry connections to the mainland have been severed, some areas left without electricity and others without water.
Other parts of the Peloponnese were also affected by the snow, which caused problems for motorists on the Corinth–Patras national highway. The Doric pillars of the Temple of Apollo in Ancient Corinth, on the other hand, seem to be enjoying this sudden change in scenery.
Despite its vicinity to Africa, Crete is not a stranger to cold or snow, though snow usually frequents the highest mountain tops. However, seeing the archaeological site of Knossos in Irakleio dressed in white is quite an experience, even for Cretans.
