Reading the above makes me glad I live in Chicago. It's dump, gloomy, raining but no snow! :)
It's been lovely so far, but I do want snow for Christmas.

Thanks wildrover. We'll get a shi&load at some point. The times when I wore winter boots twice during the winter ended about a decade ago. My new pair is on a standby in the closet.

BTW.

She tells me she was out all day today in a short skirt and a thin jacket....its minus 15 in Moscow...!!

You got yourself a pretty hot chick, man.

I was surprised by winter. I woke up Saturday morning (Kraków) to find out snow. Didn't fall yesterday but this morning it was heavy snow. Back to using mountain shoes instead of classy oxfords and monks.

Lol, your man needs less Kapusta, more Gołonka!

(Not 4 hours after this forecast in 1987, Southern England got wiped out by, yes, a massive hurricane ... )

thankfully they didn't train limey sub commanders who can't help bumping into the French on the wide sea floor. :- )

Yeah, judging by the "intelligence" of some of those military units, they'd be better off sticking with superstitions and folklore!

A farce always looks funnier in uniform. :P

Poland's feelbad factor is in full flow. Revellers are those that revel in that reality ;) Then again, the feelbad factor is an ever present here unless they have the chance to gibber, complain and gabble.

-19, great! I can feel like an Eskimo for free :)

Warm two large bread rolls and put them down your trousers... then everyone will wonder why you're smiling...;)

Here's something for you: -8 and -9 ish during the night now in Ireland. That is cold for Ireland yet it is a dry cold on this occasion, which it is isn't usually - almost no wind and low humidity. It doesn't feel that cold to me.

Poles I know here say they usually feel colder during typical Irish winter temperatures of -2 to
+2C than they do in a -20 in Poland because of the biting, penetrating moisture and wind.

in that case we have an Irish weather is Szczecin with high humidity- about 70 - 80 %

Quite a heavy snowfall in Podlasie overnight. The dog started howling to get out in it at 0430, so I went out to start shovelling while my dear wife made me a Lancashire Hotpot, which I started shovelling at 0730. Did anyone have a better breakfast today?

@Roger: try also to have NO water right now (the case in my building) ;)! At least we have snow so once melt it can be used.....

Sorry I can't send you some hotpot; it sounds as if you could do with something hot inside you. I bought the lamb in Lidl, by the way. Delicious. Don't you have a janitor for your building? He should know what's going on.

Please stick to the topic
