Soon be Summer!

Posted by Shortie Williams on March 8, 2017 at 3:45 AM

Hi! so that's my winter holiday over, and great it was too, but now it's time to get ready for the summer!
A bit early I hear you say!
But no! After the damage caused by the floods this winter I have loads to do.
It was always my intention to carry out a few changes anyway but the weather has been an issue this year. There hasn't been enough good weather to carry out the work that I wanted to in the early part, so I have to try to get it done now.
And 3 days ago it was " here we go again"!
The heavens had been open for around 18 hours with very little break. Because of the amount of rain we have had throughout the winter the water table is high. The wells are full and the ground is holding the water in anticipation for the sun to dry it up, but is loosing the battle as everytime it starts to dry, more rain!

The day before we started work on my new herb garden. I wanted to start it around November time but the ground was too wet to get to it. Then the 2 big floods! The first one put the Cosy under 1 meter of water and left everything in a right mess. The ground was still a little boggy even then but workable, so we started, then it flooded once more.
When the sun shines and the ground dries this will no longer be a problem but at the moment, Rain stops play!
The forecast is good for the next 10 days but who knows!
Last night we had one amazing storm and rain and no flooding so we are all happy!
Anyway! never mind all that.
Some work is going on around Alykanas already.
Pahnis are building a pool bar and it looks very nice! It is situated on the adjoining fence as you look at the property to the left hand side up near the road. In my opinion it's just what the doctor ordered and will encourage me to spend a bit more time there.
Loads of work is going on at the Letsos already and a couple of bars in Alykes are starting to clean and clear.

This week at the Roadhouse we have our open a year party BBQ thingy. I hope that the weather will be good for it, but if not we have the canopy area for it, so it will go ahead.

2Short are playing there tonight, (Giannis and I) at around 7.30 local time. We will broadcast the show on Roadhouse Radio so if you would like to listen just take yourself to the Roadhouse Radio page on this website and click on the bit that says "Roadhouse Radio" or go to any of our Facebook pages and find any Roadhouse Radio link or picture and click on it around that time and Listen.
My web server is under maintenance at the moment so I cannot add any graphics to this Blog. Shame because I have some pictures to share with you of our holiday and of course some local stuff too, but we'll have to wait. Sorry.

I don't know if links are working with the state of this webpage but to see our forecast for the next 10 days Click here. It may work.

Anyway, speak soon Zakynthos fans! See you soon.
