 Yes thanks rilo,that's cleared that up.
 Much as I love Agios Stefanos I'm quite pleased I'm not there just now. Temperatures in the 90s,it even hit 100 the other day and that would be in the shade.Too much!
 I just hope we lucky people going in September are not going to suffer if the weather breaks. I don't mind the odd thunderstorm don't look forward to days of rain but I hope it's not quite so hot.
 I have it on good authority that the most reliable forecast for Agios Stefanos is the Mathraki weather forecast and it does seem to be fairly accurate.

The weather is ok at the moment.  All the locals are saying it's to hot but I'm managing ok.  We've not even gone for the aircon this year but our room is quite shady.  There is a fair breeze at the moment which helps with the heat.

Heard unbelievable  news that Athena's shop (Elizabeths) was broken in to last night. If the girls working there now are the same as last few years, my heart goes out to them and Athena.  :'( I have had lot's of chats with them in between buying lovely clothes ! I told Athena she could sell ice cream to Icelanders.  :)

Sad times and desperate times, for some, but they can't go around robbing others.

Unbelievable! It is sad times. Who would've thought that something like a ram raid would happen in San Stefanos.

Hi you two! Really shocked about this and feel sorry for Athena and her family. I've always felt really safe in San Stef, but this is worrying. The locals must be stunned too. Terrible.

I don't think there's any need to worry, Karen. These events are rare. They will probably be caught before long.

I do hope so Jim, it's a shame for the locals, we know what it's like to be broken into, happened to us once, whilst we were on holiday.

Is this all true? A car stolen in Corfu town, driven to the village, and used to ram raid a jewellery shop at 07.00? It is sad, and I hope Jimbo is correct in assuming that they will be caught.

Bollards put up outside shop this weekend to prevent any repeat. I would have thought it was difficult enough with the height of the kerb.
