Routine few days
Back to the old routine for a few days now, well, yesterday, today and tomorrow – until the evening. I found out that a lot of the roadworks going on are to do with the phone provider, Ote, but the lane we live on is, by the looks of it, stone replacement. It’s good to see that stones are being re-laid in the old style and we haven’t been tarmacked over.
I did my walk up the hill yesterday, and very pleasant it was, but from the sound of it, we’re in for bad weather at the weekend. That won’t worry me as I won’t be here, but it might if I have to sail through it. If the weather is really bad, there may not be a boat at all. I’m just checking the forecasts…
Windfinder tells me it will be up to force five and no rain, so that’s okay. Accuweather tells me there will be rain on Saturday and Sunday, but it’s a slow, clunky site that I don’t find very user-friendly and don’t trust. Weather.gr shows winds 4 to 5 Bf on Thursday dying down on Friday with thunderstorms on Saturday through to Monday with winds only up to five, and Poseidon.hcmr.gr, the one I trust, shows me winds across the Aegean between 3 and 5 Bf all weekend (very windy near Corfu), and a little rain down here on Sunday. The best forecast, still, is to look out of the window at the time or ask a Symi farmer.
