As if Greeks are not divided enough on national and political issues, the weather is going to add the icing on the Greek cake and this icing is made of pure fluffy snow. In the country’s North is going to be winter, in the country’s South …summer. While Greeks in the North of Macedonia and Thrace will be freezing, those on the island of Crete can pack swimming suits and beach towels, wear their flip flops and go to the sea for a nice refreshing swim.
The peak of this crazy weather is on Thursday, March 22, although it already started to snow in the mountainous areas of West Macedonia.
