Athens Snow

It is taken from the southern suburbs of the city on 5/1/2002 during a severe snowstorm.The reason why this picture is unique is obvious: It is very rare to have about 40cm of snow in the southern suburbs of a city near the meditteranean sea.We have snow every winter but not so much and so intense.The last time this area had such an amount of snow was 50 years ago,while in the northern suburbs of the city snow exceeded even 3 or 4 meters that day!

Location: Athens, Greece
