The thing is is that here 0cm is the normal, and also if some idiot broke their arm in the school in a snowball fight, their parents would probably sue the school

Not really. I'm just an exchange student at DTU, I don't understand spoken Danish at all (although I can make something out of text) and I don't have a TV.

But I wish for the snow to come a little more to the east, it would be fun to have a snow cataclysm here. Maybe the university would release me of my project and I would have the rest of January free

In Slovenia schools actually never close because of the snow. And every winter some students broke his/her leg or arm while going to school but I don't think anybody care. It's part of the winter.

Nope. I considered taking them, but they didn't fit in my schedule. And you can't really learn a language in half a year...

But still, since you are practically surrounded by language, some words just get to you by themselves. Now with a little help from my German skills I can figure out some newspaper articles. I can't read them aloud though - it's a pity that the Danish orography is somewhat loosely connected with the pronunciation.

I went to school in Portugal and after a few months of living in Portugal I learnt Portuguese. It was a bit strange. One day I didn't really speak, then suddenly what built up kinda came together and I just started speaking Portuguese overnight

Seems not to have any noticeable effect, if they close schools because of few cm's of snow.

Here after a few years again ice plates are appearing on city roads. Driving finally got a bit more interesting.

The Dutch road authorities have salt the roads with 100.000 tonnes of salt during the past month. In a regular winter from November to April, they salt 70.000 tonnes. Almost all of the Netherlands will run out of salt during the coming weekend. Nobody can guarantee what happens next, especially with this winter storm coming up on Saturday.

We should get some noticeable snowfall as well during the weekend. Finally.
