By ’eck ma, it’s parky! A line from a Victoria Wood sketch I saw years ago – she was poking fun at Emmerdale, or Emmerdale Farm as us oldies still call it. I only mention it because it’s a bit parky up here today (Tuesday), even though the thermometer in the porch reds 12 degrees it feels colder. The thunderstorm and winds came and went overnight, and I hope there’s been no further damage anywhere. I’ve not heard of anything. It wasn’t that bad a storm, not compared to this time last week.
The photos I took of the cleaning up are now out of date, but one of us should be going to Yialos sometime soon so will have another look around for you. So, I’ll put a few more here but bear in mind they were taken last Friday, and I am sure things have moved on a pace or three since then.
As regular readers will know, I don’t get out an about much in the winter, so my images tend to be random and sometimes very out of date, but at least it’s something to look at over your morning coffee, tea, or gin and tonic, depending on who you are. I have picked up on the news that the fundraising for the repairs to schools, and other projects, is doing very well. I have made a few book sales to help in my own small way, and the other organisations, such as Solidarity Symi, have done well. Click back through older posts, over the last week if you’ve not caught up on how you can help the island rebuild, and check out the links. I have also heard that the government will be putting aside some money to help flood and storm-damaged communities; there are several around Greece at the moment.
I can’t even tell you what the view is like today because all the shutters are closed, and unless I go up on the roof, I can’t actually see anything apart from my PC screen and the bookshelf opposite me. Maybe I will venture out later. Oh, actually, just remembered: We are going to visit Jenine and the boys tonight, so that might yield some shots of something and some more news.
