February 2004 will be a month to remember. The heavy
storms at the beginning of the month were followed by pleasant
weather. Then on the 13th of February a blizzard hit the island,
with the coldest temperatures at sea level (-1°C) since records
started 130 years ago and heavy snow.
The photos below follow the chronology of the month. Pictures in the second and third row were taken a day before the snow pictures further down. This is how suddenly the weather can change in Crete.
