F1ach: Just looking out the window, I see irelands usual half arsed attempt at any type of weather, other then feckin' rain. :)
I think I have YouTubitis - every time someone says something, I can think of the ideal YT clip for it.

P1na: How often do you guys see the snow? And would you miss it?
A lot. There's been a lot of snow here in Warsaw for the past couple of weeks. Also in November/December there was already a "first wave". And yeah I would miss it. It's a little annoying how cold and wet everything gets but I love the sight of it (especially at night), I also love the sound of walking through it and I love how generally everything looks and sounds cozier (note how quiet everything gets when there's snow everywhere).

Btw, don't know if someone mentioned it already but I think last winter a GOG user living in an African country posted a thread because he got excited since it was snowing there for the first time in his life. It was kinda heartwarming. :)

As someone from Florida, I'm still greatly amused by snow in Warsaw.
It's okay as long as you post stuff as hilarious as this vid. :D

Is it true that you guys decorate Christmas palms there?

P1na: It's understandable on a country not used to snow, but after it has happened a couple times in a row, you would expect some measures to be taken...
You should come to Sweden. We get a couple months of snow every year where I am (more further north, less further south), yet as soon as a few flakes fall the railway companies (specifically SJ) become stupefied and shuts everything down.

Sometimes, yes, but that's generally done as a joke. Generally we use pine trees; most people I know use plastic ones.

jamyskis: I always find it quite funny the way the UK comes to a grinding halt when snow falls. In Germany, everything just runs as normal, but because the Brits don't have any kind of snow/ice tyre regulations, everything just stops here. Offices close, schools close, people can't get up hills with their cars.
This is 100% true

I was in the UK once when it snowed, people were literally losing their minds.

Fucking EVERYTHING was closed, nothing worked, nothing, buses did not run, trains did not run, flights were delayed, speeds on the roads were like 30 KM/H

My friend who lives in the UK, said he enjoyed watching people who owned 4x4 cars act like hotshots on the road and then crash anyway like bafoons

I often joke about this still today, the United Kingdom, one of the most important countries in the world, the country that defeated countless armies, the country that survived many things. The country was brought to it's knees, not by the economy, an army, or something else....it was brought to it's knees...by...snow.
It's snowing here as well - and I'm loving it.
It's been snowing for the past month here. I just wish it would go away. It's too cold.

Now that's plain dumb. In my country it snows often too, and pretty much every year a few mountain roads close for a day or so. But usually nothing really closes, my school closed once in all the time I was there.

I was in Sweden once, but during summer if I recall. So no snow.
We've just had one nights snowfall here where I live and all the schools in the area have shut down, no-one can get their car off their road, poeple have not gone to work, and everything is at a standstill.

Sadly I work from home so cant join in the general day off everyone else seems to enjoy!

UK + snow = chaos
I'm totally confused. I'm looking at my trusty globe here and it seems Sweden is geographically WAY further north than where I live, (U.P. of Michigan) yet you say Sweden gets a couple of months of snow a year while I get between 6 to 7 months of snow a year. I'm not complaining, I love snow and I abhore tropical weather, but it seems my basic fundamental (redundant) knowledge of global weather patterns and physics has gone totally haywire.

Far out! I'm gonna lay some rep on you for that, thanks.
