8th March - Today's News: Snow Brings Chaos to Greece

First up, thanks to everyone who has started passing on relevant news stories that I've missed or not spotted yet - this is great and makes the site even better! Keep it up. If you post the url under comments, I'll then add it in to my next blog entry so it remains searchable for future reference.

It was, though, well predicted and reports suggest conditions aren't as bad as it appeared they might be.
