I also use weather.com for the forecast and it's quite accurate (at least for the forecast during the next 3-4-5 days).

Right. I wouldn't bet money on the accuracy of their longer-range forecasts, but I don't think I'd bet money on the accuracy of anyone's longer-range forecasts.

Now THIS is a winter I can live with!

We had two cold days (highs of freezing or below) this week (and a freak snowstorm in October), but otherwise it's been quite tolerable.

It's relatively common, we can have until 15 snowy days in a winter, although the most common is only one or two days the snow has some importance.

Well that's less than overhere in a normal year. We have on average 30 snow days a year and I don't consider snow common overhere in winter....But I guess it's what you are used to..

Well, if you think in a place where there are 30 snow days per winter (your town) is "very rare" to find snow, I don't agree.

In some places, the dynamics that produce snow are mostly related to we currents from the ocean clashing with dry cold fronts from the Arctic. When this happens, a low of snow is produced, by temps reach daily highs that usually melt quickly the snow.

Strange enough, as Arad is quite more to the north than central Bulgaria, and here it was kinda snowy hell - blocked motorways for hours, hundreds of villages without electricity, some for more than 24 hours etc.

They just said on a TV talk show about economics: "Many Italian companies are now moving their production to Eastern countries such Slovakia, Czeckoslovakia and Romania." And he repeated Czeckoslovakia several times.

Maybe they are building the plant exactly at the border... half in SK and the other half in CZ. So it's true

He could wrong the name, but what he said it's true and it's really bad for our economy

Czechoslovakia is still quite common in informal speech here. Saying Slovakia and Czechoslovakia is a bit strange though

Lol quite stupid to talk about SK and CS in the same sentece.

Some people use it even here eg. except of saying "largest city in Slovakia and Czech rep." some people would say "in Czechoslovakia".

Most probably Czechoslovakia wasn't the only mistake, but he also meant Slovenia by saying Slovakia

The German Wetterzentrale site still uses 1980's maps for their weather maps...

A friend of mine works at Deutsche Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt and once told me they were using maps with West and East Germany until last year

It happened at an official ceremony that they mistook SK with SLO and played the wrong anthemn.
And I remember a school professor putting Oslo in Finland, and someone else Barcelona in Portugal. And though that Messi was Italian and Beckam German.
