Weather - Sick of winter.

Last week it was Storm Ciara with freezing conditions in-between followed by Storm Dennis hitting our shores today. Ugh, totally sick of it, I need some sunshine.

I know but I'm still sick of it.

Wishing I could afford living somewhere warmer for at least 2 months of the winter.

It's not as bad as when I was a kid, walking over the frozen ijsselmeer or watching the Elfstedentocht but still

P.s for anyone reading wondering what the hell is the Elfstedentocht, it's a ice-skating race about 200 km long passing 11 towns in Friesland.

Went for a walk just a minute ago and it was very sunny,however the very cold wind blowing gave me a headache.
It's really unfortunate that the seasons go from summer to winter (at least where I'm from) there isn't that stepping stone period to change and have a mild weather. It's certainly not how it used to be 10 years ago.

Feeling the same here.

Went for a walk just a minute ago and it was very sunny,however the very cold wind blowing gave me a headache.

Earlier this week I took a walk in the park and pretended it's was a warm spring day to try and cheer myself up. The rain put an end to my delusion though.

Maybe you could give one of the cats a home...
I thought Greece had a pretty good number of animals? https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_mammals_of_Greece

Well in wooded area's they are pretty common I suppose. The grey squirrel as in the pictures is considered an invasive species in Ireland, still, I do like watching them. https://invasivespeciesireland.com/species-accounts/established/terrestrial/grey-squirrel

I saw the little European robin out this morning as well, although, it's still a tad windy.  Can't really upload great quality here, but have a look

Okay, I had to google the turtle I admit. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Loggerhead_sea_turtle

Looks nice, though. The flying roaches sound a lot less pleasant.

My island is a huge nesting site for these turtles. Planes arent allowed to fly at night hours for this reason as well. When you go to the beach in the morning you can see the mother turtles trails. Night swimming is forbiden in nesting sites as well as big lights nearby (because the eggs hatch and they follow the moonlight to guide them to the sea).
They are quite fascinating animals.

Sounds fascinating to see as a local, I would not want to disturb as a tourist but sounds like you have front row seats to see something amazing from time to time

There's a sad thing to the whole turtle spotting business,because the tourists don't respect the poor animal. Just like all sea life it should be admired by a distance and not disturbed by getting close or taking pictures with flash.
Most English tourists don't seem to understand that it's a sacred animal,in danger of extinction.

63F here today and cloudy.  We’ve had very few below freezing days this winter... so far. I’m near Florida though
