Winter officially arrived in Warsaw two days ago.
On Wednesday, snow fell nearly nonstop all day – the first snowfall of 2014! I woke up to more snowflakes this morning, and the snow looks like it won’t be leaving anytime soon according to our extended weather forecast.
Well, for our first winter in Poland, I must admit I’m happy we have escaped the snow for this long. Everyone tells us that we are having an unusual winter. The previous winter lasted from late October in 2012 to the first week of April, when we moved to Warsaw. What a wonderful welcome gift!

Prior to this week, I had only seen a dusting of snow on December 6 when I arrived bleary eyed from my holiday trip in the U.S. I wouldn’t have minded a little snow on Christmas, but that did not happen. Now, Warsaw is covered in a white, wintery glow!
Though I really didn’t want to leave my toasty, warm apartment, I decided to break in my new winter boots and take some photos around the city, which did look pretty covered in the fresh snow. I only took my cell phone because I didn’t want our good camera to get ruined. This will give you just a little taste of what we’re experiencing.
I’m pretty positive this snowfall won’t be our last. Stay tuned!
