Just over a year ago I was writing about winter in Corfu, and here I am doing the same thing again. Like last year, the weather has suddenly turned really cold and my grandson Alexis actually asked his mum to let him wear hat, scarf and gloves to go out – unheard of from a small boy who usually displays blissful disdain for the cold.
Since I started to put this blog together, the weather has changed and changed again. Today the weather is coming up from the south – bringing strong wings and milder temperatures. A few days ago we had the ‘red rain that comes on the back of the winds from the Libyan desert. (The Italians call it ‘blood rain’). More recently, the island shook every few minutes with earthquakes, one of which shook us all to the accompaniment of a sound like thunder.
