Snow Help Greeks WIth Bulgarian Blockade

So snow is on the side of the Greeks as it aids their blockage of the border. Having experienced the extremes of weather recently I must say this report is no exaggeration with the blizzards that were seen on Friday night. Freezing temperatures are forecast now with more snow at the end of the week. Must be very cold for the Greeks who are protesting in their tractors.

Travel in several parts of Bulgaria was an unpredictable if not impossible business on the weekend of January 23 and 24 2010 with on-again, off-again blockades at the border with Greece and with heavy snowfalls disrupting motoring in the northern and eastern parts of the country.
On the morning of January 24, Bulgaria’s border police said that all checkpoints on the Bulgarian-Greek border were open and traffic was flowing without queues. However, it blockades by protesting Greek farmers, who had not quit the scene, resumed later on January 24.
