snow

Carpe Diem 974 Cyprus


Snow on an island in the Mediterranean feels more like an oxymora than a reality.  Surely Japan has snow but isn't it further north?  Yes, part of Japan is further north.  It must be the elevation, 1,952 m (6,404 ft).  According to Wikipedia, "Cyprus has the warmest climate and warmest winters in the Mediterranean part of the European Union."  It still has winter temperatures in the mountains to maintain 4 ski lifts.  One just has to love the whole creation and climate thing.....  What fun.
