Default Re: Weather forecast

I read an article a while back about medium term forecasts and I think it said that if there's a forecast that it will rain in five days, that will only be true 40% of the time which means that 4+ day forecasts are more often wrong that right so maybe you should read those reverse instead to be correct more often.

EDIT: Here's another article about the topic

Cold Re: Weather forecast

Feel bad for you Ante but........ it was 60F(15.5C )here 3 days ago ...now we have snow cover and it's cold enough to freeze the icicles off an eskimo(25F/3.8C)!......feels cold when you're not used to it.

True, its E. Glaucum. It grows on bad, windy position and I didnt want to digg it out to make hardynes test. This is third time that it lost all leaves . Only good thing is that it is dormant now.

Yep, it should cool down a little bit, standing at the Christmas Markets will get slightly more difficult.
But on the other hand, MY little piece of Slovakia in the south is still warmer than anything else around. LOL.
Ante, broken again? You're the man!
Btw. do you see where the front has come from? That's the reason why nobody's ever conquered Russia.

Are you trading at the Christmas Market? It means you are Santa’s little helper? heheheh I’m just kidding. So put some photos here, I thought we can make a new topic about some events, customs, interesting places etc. while we have a winter here and bananas and other plants do not grow too much.

Ps Jack my grandmother used to said “Eastern wind never brings anything good”

Nope, Sew, but it's quite a festivity here, you know, meeting people, hanging out with your friends, having something delicious, (non)alcoholic, wine... Lots of these days you just go there to see some girls, everyone's mood is excellent, very happy and usually delightfully tipsy...

I would take the camera there, but I'm quite worried that someone would very quickly make it change the owner. I will do try though. It might also look weird (carrying a camera around) - like Japanese tourists (there is a Japanese embassy nearby).

Also, the tradition of "Santa Claus" (aka "The damn old fat man created by Coca-Cola as a commercial") is mostly marketing. There's are lots of people (majority I believe), who dispise that character and it's not uncommon to see some youngsters beat up someone dressed as Santa. It's the way it goes around here. Don't tell me it's different in Poland.

See what people from Czech republic do...

Well I don't know the "santas" are oppressed here, not many people walking on the streets in this king of apparel (maybe in supermarkets). Here Santa Claus = St. Nicolaus usually wears mitre and crosier (and gives presents at 6th of December - I think the same like in Slovakia nad many other countries)
Luckyly for fake santas Infant Jesus doesn't give a presents here so they don't have to afraid of being beheaded, hanged or defenestrated

Very funny. Yep, 6th December, Mikuláš. Every child's favorite day. Lots of sweets, candies,...

Our Christmas Markets look very similar, with one difference, there's so many (really, way too many) people that you can hardly move in the crowd... and also a stage at the end of the square. Occasionally there are some real bands playing theme songs, Christmas carrols etc., but competitions and give aways are not so rare either.
Will take my camera or cell phone, when I head that direction next time.

Ante, what about you? Any such markets? It would be way much easier in your mild Mediterranean climate.

Oh, yeah, and I forgot about the random kissing contest. When the great bell rings, a man is supposed to kiss any women standing close to him (preferrably one he doesn't know and is beautiful!!!!). Interesting. Yet very pleasureful. At least for me. But no girl has objected to me kissing her at all. Some boyfriends have though.

Oh snap, maybe an inspiration for future? It's the sole purpose I like this holiday, everyone's relaxed and cheerful, people wanna meet almost everyday, not a single time I am there I happen to be alone and I always meet there someone unexpected.
