I live just about 85 km from Warsaw so it's not too far 😅
And no, it's not a nice weather here. It's so windy today and the temperature had been higher this spring - right now it's 13 C, so if Google is right about temperature in Brisbane (17C), here's colder ;)
Yes 17C is about right - and I am sitting here with my fluffy slippers and cardigan and blanket and freezing to death!! And it's been raining for 10 days straight which is VERY weird for us, so we're not happy about that either. I'm quite sure you would laugh at us Rozzy but we're DYING over here and it's NO JOKE - ok maybe it's a little bit of a joke, and we do like to moan about the cold here ;)

I have fluffy slippers rn too! But just because I forgot to change them after winter :ROFLMAO:
Yeah, I laughed but I understood you :) You would laugh how we always complain on "high" temperature at summer :)

In the past I've seen this meme and just refound it:

Are they serious about wearing jackets when it's 30C or did they overdo it?

Yes that meme seems about right, Rozzy! And i'm sure there are a few residents of cities like Darwin or Cairns who have been known to wear a jacket in 30C, they have been known to drop dead in anything less than 25C up there. I must've dropped dead at *least* 3 times when I lived in Cairns and it got that "cold"! ;)

That's a very fetching new featherstyle that my favourite Polish niece is sporting there, Rozzy. In fact I think it would make a great official POTM entry too! ;)
Rozalka thanks you.
Wait... so she is your favorite Polish nice? I learnt something new 🤔

Well of course she is Roz! Zenek is my favourite Polish nephew, so naturally Rozalka would therefore be my favourite Polish niece❤️

Actually the Green Bay news channel runs photos of residents who’ve stepped outdoors in shorts and bare feet in the middle of winter…making 0 C appear balmy.

My roommate would start laying out on our porch as soon as it hit 50f.

Wow Rozzy! You weren't joking about a heavy moult for Zenek - my poor little nephew looks like a pin cushion!

Absolutely I wasn't joking - It's been few weeks! And I still can see his naked skin- it's visible even on this photo😳
