Waiting for the sun: Floods and winds put Greek summer on hold

Greeks who would usually be basking in the early summer sun have kept behind closed doors this week as winds and heavy rains washed away sunbeds and sent floods crashing into some resorts.

Freak weather conditions drenched towns and cities and turned some roads into rivers - a worry in a country so dependent on its summer tourist trade.

Looks like it's going to be hot and sunny on Kef  :)

Some say the worst June in living memory. Certainly the worst I have recorded by a long way, with rainfall over 200 mms.

Just returned from 4 weeks in Skala. Yes we had some unbelieveable thunderstorms and for a few days more like early October, we felt sorry
for the bars and restaurants as the tourists stayed in their hotels and apartments, but this last week the sunny blue skies returned and the temperatures soared back to the Kefalonia we know and love.
