Rare phenomenon: Sea is “boiling” at legendary Myrtos Beach, Kefalonia

Beaches in Greece were also covered by snow, including two meters on the island of Evia and heavy falls on Chios and Lesbos - home to thousands of refugees, some of whom are living in tents.

The Met Office said the Shetland Islands were warmer than Crete - despite being thousands of miles further north.

Greek islands declare state of emergency after heavy snow

Greece has declared a state of emergency on three islands in the Aegean as the country grapples with record snowfall and freezing temperatures as a major cold snap sweeps across continental Europe.

The storm has so far dropped more than two metres of snow, hitting Euboia, Alonnisos and Skopelos in the northern cluster of the Sporades islands the hardest.

Wednesday could see more snowfall, but likely to be only on higher ground in Kefalonia. Lower levels will see sleet or rain and strong winds.

Cold and snowy for a few days, but getting a bit warmer now.
It was nothing like as bad as January 2006, when we were without power and water for a week, after severe snow and ice storms. The army were called in to help get power supplies restored.
