And here we are - ul. Poloneza. I could feel the Nissan's vulnerable electrics getting sodden; windscreen wipers and heater fan would slow noticeably after splashing into a deep puddle. The snow fell all day. Warsaw's snow ploughs were caught on the hop - we've never had snow before the clocks go back for winter! Temperature hovered between +0.8C and +1.2C, so the snow was melting as the new snow fell.
What's strange is that trees are still very much in leaf - why, there's still a fair amount of greenery around! Above: Photo taken from bus window returning from meeting, lunchtime today. Ul. Czerniakowska.
Above: Trudging back from lunch, I was ankle-deep in slush, the uncleared pavements were treacherous. The air was damp, the wind harsh, feet wet with icy water - in all - thoroughly miserable weatherwise. Yet somehow, a most Scandinavian klimat.
Above: Imielin, dusk. Notice how the leafed trees form snow shades; a phenomenon you'd only get with settling snow before November. Less than a week ago, it was +24C!
