That was the Day of Days
Winter in Paradise
By Ralph Kratzer
You experience some freak weather in 10 years of living in Cyprus. I remember torrential rain with floods, hail storms that demolished cars and rooftops, and cold winter days like in January 2013 (to remember – click here!).
But today was a memorable day in the sunny paradise of Northern Cyprus. After the early arriving of winter at the end of last year, lots of rain, and now nearly two weeks of continually cold and wet weather, today came the climax with heavy snowfall and temperatures near freezing (at least in my house near the mountains of Alsancak).
Here are some pictures without comment from my garden and surroundings.
Good news of the day: sun has been back now for more than 1 hour and the weather forecast gives me hope!
P.S. Next winter I have to think about going somewhere else where it will be warmer…
