Western Germany (near to Bonn): in this winter there was not any snow (not even so that it melt just after falling onto the earth). In this winter there was not a single day when the temperature was under zero the whole day.

Montreal Canada, has been very cold. This morning -17 *C and some -20's for next week (real temperature not "wind factor")

However the upside is not too much snow. Still quite a lot but less than last year. When it's -20, there is no humidity left for snow

A wet winter is good for the summer, to fill up those reservoirs.

Mountains in south of Alps have such deep snow blanket that can surpass prevoius record values in some areas.
For example last weekend on Pokljuka, Slovenia, 1300 m altitude, about 2 meters:

Just 30 km more west (straight line) there is a 0,5-1,0 m extra snow to this picture for the same altitude

Anyway, very mild winter compared to last year for example.
Same here (Budapest and Kecskemét). This was the warmest winter of my life. I saw the most snow when I turned on the Olympic broadcast.

Of course this didn't stop me from getting a cold which lasted 10 days.

Yup. And due to that the reservoirs are in record high levels. We won't run short of water next summer.

And Eastern Hungary was part of Romania at some time.



But I think it's better not to get into this things because we all know the story.

Actually most Romanians here on SSC are quite decent guys compared to what I have seen on some other parts of the internet. Of course there are (and will be) some things that we see very differently but so far the conversations I've had here were in the spirit of mutual respect.

Everywhere on this planet you will find reasonable people to have a nice and decent discussion, even though your views are totally different.

There are also trolls and idiots everywhere you will go, and arguing with those guys is not something you want. We have them, your country has them and unfortunately every country in the world has them.

Most of the ones posting in international section. In the local section there are some Great Romanian "patriots".

@bogdymod: we both know that was not Romania
Romania as a real recognized state only exists from 1859.

Anyway, I'm not trying to start anything here, just stating some facts

Well that's comforting, given that I just happened on yet another round of "Americans Are Stupid" in the "cultured" European press: http://www.lalibre.be/light/insolite...708d729d85c33b

I guess that's how one proves how cultured one is....
