Winter of 2008; snowstorms and arctic temperatures in Greece

Global warming has been delayed not only in the U.S., China and Japan, but also in Greece:
A raging snow storm that blanketed most of Greece over the weekend also continued into the early morning hours on Monday, plunging the country into sub-zero temperatures. Public transport buses were at a standstill on Monday in the wider Athens area, while ships remained in ports, public services remained closed, and schools and courthouses in the more severely-stricken prefectures were also closed. Scores of villages, mainly on the island of Crete, and in the prefectures of Evia, Argolida, Arcadia, Lakonia, Viotia, and the Cyclades islands were snowed in.

For those of you whose publik skule teeches globul warmin insted of geeogrufee, this is Greece.
