Winter here near the western border of Poland has been quite mild thus far; of course, we still have January and February to get through, but so far, it’s been pretty mellow. We had an ice storm roar through the country about three weeks, but that only lasted a couple of days.
I’ve been able to line-dry clothes. In December. That’s a surprise. The other day, we had a daytime high of about 51 degrees F, and that’s actually warm for this time of year.
