no snow!!!!!!

Post: # 253160Post demi »

AAAHHH!!! thats totally typical that is has to now the very week we are flying back to macedonia!
it said on the news the flights could be distrupted until thursday! our flight is on tuesday!
and we have 2 seperate flights with different airlines, if the first is delade or cancelled and we miss the next one we wont get refunded!

also the is the issue of if we manage to get to macedonia, it is currently -30 with over a meter of snow, so even if we manage to land we might get stuck in the car on a mountain somewhere on the way home!

damn this snow, worst timing ever!!!!

the forcast seems to be saying now that it should get warmer by monday so hopfully it will be ok to fly on tuesday.
its still a bit iffy in macedonia though. i have visions of us getting the car stuck in the snow up a mountain in the middle of no where, and we've got a 4 year old and a baby with us.
lets hope everything will be fine!

thanks :wav:

Really? At the moment I am in Wirral, England and there is none here. Ground is wet, very high cloud but bright.
Just because you see two eyes shining in the jungle at night, do not think that the worse thing that could happen is that you are about to be attacked by a tiger. It could be two one-eyed tigers.

What's the weather normally like in Macedonia in February? I must confess my geography knowledge is minimal and as OH tells me there are two Macedonias I'm even more lost. :dontknow:

Slowly thawing snow here in East London - very useful for locating our black cat in the dark! It is his first snow and he absolutely loves it!

I was lost too because I always think of the Greek region of Macedonia when anyone mentions the name, as the one one which is a country in its own right (now) was called FYROM (Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia) but seems to have lost that now? I'm sure Demi can tell us when it lost that name. It is confusing!

Every year around February there is snow. The authorities are always caught out! We get the usual cry. Airports closed, trains not running, roads not salted and gritted, schools closed (it only takes one flake of snow for school boilers to fail), and this year, not for the first time panic buying (according to the radio W***rose has run out of bread in London. All for 4 inches of snow! Makes you think?

the weather is cold just now there, arround - 20 at night and theres lots of snow.
it can get down to - 30 at night in the winter, and there is often freezing fog covering our town for a few consective weeks.
but when the sun is shining the day time temperature can get back up to +20, and you can be sitting in t-shirts in the sun in the garden in january :)

as for the 'where the hell is macedonia?' question:
macedonia the contry borders with greece, bulgaria, serbia, albainia and now the newly formed kosovo.
there diddnt use to be any defined borders between these contrys, thats where all the debate has arrisen from.
macedonia used to cover a huge reigon which streched right down to the sea in greece at Thesoloniki.
when they difined the borders macedonia got split up and all the surrounding contrys ( greece, bulgaria, serbia and albaina) all took a part, leaving just the central riegon of macedonia as the actual contry.
so there is a large reigon in northern greece, from the macedonian border right down to the sea at Thesoloniki which is called macedonia, because it used to be part of 'greater' macedonia.
greece has problems with this and says that their riegon of macedonia ( in greece ) is the only true macedonia and that macedonia ( the contry) does not exist. they blocked macedonia with a vito from entering nato and applying for the european union all because of the name issue. and now macedonia ( the conrty ) took greece to the international court of justice in Hag because greece and macedonia had signed a treaty so that greece wouldn't prevent macedonia from euro intergration and macedonia wouldnt claim terrotorial rights over the greek reigon macedonia. and greece broke the treaty by by vitoing macedonia.

also there was allways loads of macedonians still living in the greek reigon macedonia ( as they have allways lived there ) and greece did a bit of ethnical clensing and forced them all to leave and those who stayed got murdered. this was about 60 years ago or so.
