Polemi Rain

Published 15th of January, 2019

The winter storms are back with a vengeance. Polemi had 46mm of rain overnight, and it showed this morning. Our webcam presented a sorry picture, but I was curious to see what was happening in other parts of the village...

Webcam View


This was the view from the webcam, but what did it look like close up?



That's normally a field. The farmer was out pruning his vines yesterday. I don't think he will be there today.



This is the view to the right of the webcam. If you look on the right you can see a black horizontal line at the edge of the picture, just over half way up. This is part of a drain they built last summer. Had it not been for this drain we would have been flooded. As it was, one of our neighbours still had some flooding, so not everybody was as lucky as we were.

To The Left


This is the view to the left of the webcam. Fortunately, water was flowing in this direction, away from the houses. I walked up to have a closer look.



This was a bit weird. There was obviously a drain in the corner of the field, but because there was so much water it created this whirlpool.

Polemi Sunset

Polemi isn't known for it's sunsets, well, to us at least. They are normally the domain of the coastal areas of Paphos, and Max's house. However, this evening, the Gods smiled on us, and granted us a lovely sunset. The photos can provide a brief, fitting epilogue to our last blog, Polemi Sunrise.

Polemi Concentration Camp

As you approach Polemi from the B7, you pass the Kamanterena Winery on your right. Just beyond that, if you are paying attention, you will see a lookout tower that wouldn't look out of place on a WW2 movie. A couple of ancient armoured vehicles might also perk your interest, so pull over, and take a look at Polemi Concentration Camp.
