Hania may be on an island in the Mediterranean, but we've never had a winter when snow hasn't fallen. It's rare to get snow in the town or other low-lying areas, but Lefka Ori (the White Mountains) are covered in snow from mid-November to late March, or even early April. This shot of the mountain range was taken (from the car window) close to our house as I was going to school to pick up the children at about noon. The olives from the trees in the photo were only recently harvested.
