Power just came on so had my Meds a little early just incase . Fire is a bad one evacuated people from a couple of villages all the elderly and women from another . Even with everything closed the smell of smoke is everywhere .😥😥🥵

How truly awful Davey. Hope you stay safe where you are. X
I am glad that your power is back on but a very worrying time for you. I hope that conditions won't worsen for you.
No guarantees this is the second fire this week in same place , next to power station 😵
Thoughts and prayers with you and all in your village Dave xx
I won't be going bed tonight just in case I need to get out , I don't move quickly 😅
Please be safe. And yes... you have your stepdad to keep safe also. Sending prayers your way🙏🏻
Were ok I guess they put out , no drama in the night but left me extremely tired ..
Keep safe! They’re causing havoc aren’t they!
Oh yes big time no water this morning 😂😂
Hope you keep safe and the fires settle. Wishing g you well xx👍💕
Thank you I'm keeping my fingers crossed all is good for the villagers whose homes got damaged
Gosh. That is dreadful. Just hope you and step- dad remain safe. Fingers and everything crossed. xxx
We're hoping it doesn't flare up again fire crews are still buzzing around just in case . 🤞🤞
I saw this on the news, what a worry for you. Keep safe and try to rest up when you can x
Just trying to find a cool spot today the whole house smells of smoke 😅
Oh, how awful and sad. The thyme and the dryness of the hills makes it so easy to start, so hard to stop.
The olive trees are the worst they burn hotter and longer and difficult to control
It must be so difficult to stay that alert for so much of the time. I hope that you get some relaxation as the day goes on. Grace
When you know that the possibility of the fire reaching you staying alert is definitely not a problem 😂😂 the tiredness now well that's different I could sleep the clock round if it wasn't so hot and I wouldn't complain if it was just 32 degrees 😂😂😂
Stay safe. DH is moaning here (in Malta) how hot it is. Currently 32C with a forecast high of 38C. Hot but not like Greece. Sitting down with a cold drink in the air conditioning watching Olympics
Sounds exactly like Hell! You poor thing I do hope they manage to put the fires out once and for all. Take care xx
Helicopters are still flying around dropping water so their definitely making sure it's out 👍👍
That's great Davey, Perhaps you could get them to do a drop on you? That would cool you down! 😘😘 Seriously though, I hope you manage to get respite from the heat and manage some rest, take care xx
Stay safe and well. A friend with young children, during fires in Australia, hung wet towels in front of the air conditioning and windows to absorb any smoke that wafted in. xx
No Aircon thankfully got the shutters down to try and cool down the rooms can't smell the smoke until you get outside so I double mask something I don't like doing breathing tight at best of times
I do hope the smoke+ash doesn't affect yr breathing.i hope u can sleep this afternoon.u must be exhausted.i do hope u have no more fires nearby.so worrying 4u.thoughts r with u x
Snatched half hour sleep kept coughing so broken sleep , still feeling tired chest obviously tight going round the house trying to find a cool spot .,,😂😂
Let's hope tomorrow brings you some relief. Take care 🌧 wishing you some rain
The rain would be lovely but I guess it wouldn't go down well with the tourists 🤣🤣🤣 or as their now called by a lot of the locals the covid carriers . 🤣🤣
I hope i won't be called that if i manage to come out 😄
No , the old people in the villages are the ones who call tourists that but yet again they were against the islands opening up for tourists or each other , it's nothing personal it scares the hell out of them , looking at it from there prospective before we opened up the largest amount of cases were eight in one week now we're open 104 cases in a day so you can see the logic ..😵😵👍
Yes I totally understand them. I would be the same 😊
It's confusing for them , they understand that the island needs tourism but what they don't want are the ignorant law breakers 😔🥺
They are everywhere unfortunately. I hope you had a better night
How absolutely horrifying a situation to find yourself Davey. We were all sweltering in the uncomfortable heat last week in the UK but nothing like you are experiencing in Rhodes and Turkey. I can only join in with the others on here and hope things improve for you aĺl as soon as possible. My thoughts are with you. RR
I was just watching a program on Greek TV a news report and they had their top climatologist saying within possibly twenty years Greece could be like the African planes , temperature here is climbing quickly each year getting hotter than the last one ,, fires are getting more frequent and not enough is being done about it globally . The guy had a point . I also found out that the animal center was burnt out last night during the fire some animals were saved but majority were lost . A sad day 😪😪😪
Oh dear, when will the powers that be accept its due to global warming and start finding ways to combat it? Its happening now!, Look at Brazil, Australia and the fires there. Flooding in india and other parts of the world. Its frightening!Please keep us posted to know how things are.
It's ridiculous really because the people who have the power to change the situation are only concerned with money , look at it another way politicians globally have bunkers and we'll protected what's Jo bloggs from down the road got nothing , people like Elon musk Richard Branson all have money so they will be ok . But we can't do anything about it . No one listens to us 😵🤣😂🤣😂🤣
Sadly, you are right Davey. It is a global dilemma and each country has to take responsibility for their actions and come together to find solutions. Is this the sort of legacy we leave for future generations? We are going through difficult times all over the world and the future is bleak. Please keep us posted and keep safe.RR.
Will do , well a further 81 cases today not good news for a small island who before opening up to tourists the highest amount of cases were eight in a week not a day . Well I'm on my 12th litre of water today making sure I keep hydrated or just a mini lake 🤣🤣🤣 Keep your chin up have a lovely day and always keep safe 👍
There might not be future generations. We are having multiple apocalypse already. And all man-made.
Well Nostradamus was right so far . Looking at the big picture floods several of earthquakes several of forest fires plenty of pandemic well plenty of water shortages plenty of the list goes on and most caused by man . 👍👍👍 Totally agree
Rest up and stay safe x
Can't seem to settle over past couple of days , well for good reason I suppose but it's 12.15 here two hours Infront of UK so I'm sat on my bed listening to my MP3 player 🤣🤣
Hope you get some sleep tonight. Everyone here is rooting for you and your dad plus the rest of the village. 🍀🍀🍀
I dropped off for twenty minutes now awake yet against can't settle. 😂😂. Going to try again 👍😴😴
Must be hellish for you with difficulty breathing and being so tired but unable to get a proper sleep. I hope you did get some sleep in the end .🍀🍀🍀🍀
I eventually dropped off just before my alarm went off for my Meds 😂 but managed a twenty minutes power nap 🤣🤣🤣
Better than nothing but I was hoping you got longer. 🍀🍀🍀🍀
I'm not complaining it's better than a kick in the bum bum 😹😹😹
