Indeed. And it's 6 months long. Half your life in Poland, you walk outside and go, "this sucks".
Maybe you do, but other people enjoy the sunny, wintery days. I like the fact that Poland has proper seasons, that you can go skiing every year without fail in Poland, that you can sunbathe every year without fail - all in all, the weather is pretty decent.
Can you count properly? Look at the weather now, It's 2nd January and it's not winter still. It is unusual, but anyway real winter comes usually sometime in December and lasts till end of March. This is about 3 and a half months...
It's really warm today - up to 8c at one point.
By mid september you can forget about t-shirts and by october, winter jackets. you will not get relief from this till May and I've seen some cold, crummy May's.
Winter jackets in October?! No way. Perhaps you're just too sensitive to the cold, but my winter jacket didn't get broken out until mid-November this year.
October, November, December, January, February, March, April, May. that's 8. if we cut off half of October and half of May, we've still got 7 and you surely will not be able to cut below 6.
April and May are normally quite warm in Poland. Heck, we were having picnics last year in late April in the sunshine.
I've worn light jackets until early November and tee-shirts from early April. Not every year, but most. This year seems quite mild.
I wonder what country he was living in, I really do.
