Extreme high temperature warnings

Uploaded by: Granddad

Kalamata, Greece

Caption: When your garden is carved out of the rocks in the Mani in southern Greece about the only way to grow flowers is in pots and the only time to appreciate them is early in the morning before the sun gets too high. WU tells me that its raining in England…… we've not seen any rain here for weeks and it will be many more weeks until we see any more. Still it's nice to know that WU really cares….. We get Extreme high temperature warnings most days… as though we hadn't noticed.

Art, When I go 'tits up' you will know all about it because I will haunt your e-mails with Paddy O' Barmah spam in revenge! When I was last in Boston I visited the museum and discovered that most people thought that the Boston tea-party was a red-neck's night out.
Okeedoky, if it were merely 38C we would think that it was a return of a new ice age! We have a micro climate in Kitries because we are in the lee of the Taigetos mountains and stuck in a little cove by the sea. Sounds lovely, but we do get some funny weather, including extremely high temperatures in summer. No ice road truckers, however.

About Granddad


We are English, (except our dogs, who are definitely very Greek, having been abandoned strays who took us in out of the kindness of their hearts). We retired to Greece in 2003 to escape the phoney political correctness endemic throughout the Anglo-Saxon world and to mix with some real people again. We live in the Exo-Mani in the extreme South of the Peloponnesus, where the sea and countryside are beautiful and the weather is also less political (i.e. they don't tax sunshine yet). The site provides an opportunity for us to bore the whole world with our snapshots and for which we are duly grateful.
