London, U.K.

London in an unusual winter!
Το Λονδίνο με ασυνήθιστο χειμώνα!
Last December we were visiting our  son Theodoros who lives and works in the city of London.
Τον περασμένο Δεκέμβριο επισκεφθήκαμε τον γιό μας Θεόδωρο, που ζει και εργάζεται στο Λονδίνο.

Heavy snow showers swept London. Snow has been blanketing large swathes of Britain for several weeks. 
Βαριά χιονόπτωση σάρωσε το Λονδίνο. Το χιόνι είχε σκεπάσει μεγάλα τμήματα της Βρετανίας.
Very cold outside, warm inside. - Πολύ κρύο έξω, αλλά μέσα ζεστασιά.

Temperatures were so low that meteorologists predicted Britain was likely to experience its coldest December since 1910. 
Οι θερμοκρασίες ήταν τόσο χαμηλές, που οι μετεωρολόγοι πρόβλεπαν ότι η χώρα θα ζούσε τον πιο κρύο Δεκέμβριο από το 1910.

Severe winter weather with exceptional conditions. Many areas have had record low temperatures and snowfall has been the most widespread since 1981.
Βαρυχειμωνιά με ιδιαίτερα δύσκολες καιρικές συνθήκες. Μερικές περιοχές σημείωσαν χαμηλές θερμοκρασίες και χιονοπτώσεις τις χειρότερες από το 1981.

Ακραίες καιρικές συνθήκες σε πολλές χώρες επιφύλαξε ο Δεκέμβρης, εμείς στην Αθήνα ίσα που προλάβαμε να δούμε λίγο χιονάκι!

Querido amigo,

Acredito que a natureza apenas anda nos devolvendo o que estamos fazendo com ela...

Δε με νοιάζει όπως κι αν είναι με χιόνι ή χωρίς, εγώ το Λατρεύω.
Ένας λόγος παραπάνω που εκεί ζουν τα παιδιά μου, σε λίγες μέρες θα είμαι εκεί, επιστρέφοντας θα έχω και φωτογραφικό υλικό.

Your blog is quite different..I think it's pretty cool the way you feature folks from all over like this! Sometimes it takes awhile for my page to load and I see so many colorful places..there is a expression here on the islands "I feel like on a rock" (lol)..
We've been getting snow too but I think it would be hard to live in it..Anyway, 1910..gee, but I guess the predictions don't surprise me..great post and photos- cheers, Regina:)
