Situation isn't as bad as in 2007, but this year is one of warmest winters. Its not about precipitation, the weather is rainy. The problem is
temperature, that stays above the zero. Water levels are high everywhere, even the ground water levels. We got early winter, but it was just few
weeks. After that the temperatures have stayed above zero. Even Christmas was rainy, far from white. Its not rare to have week long warmer periods,
but this has lasted almost 2 months. Some weird weather anomaly keeps pushing low pressure centers from Atlantic towards Scandinavia. They bring rain
and warmer weather. Currently the wind is turning from north, which will bring snow and colder weather, but European long-term predictions predict
warmer winter, so they situation could continue.
The birds are starting to sing like during the spring, nature is preparing for the spring already.
And have to say, European forecasters predicted mild winter during the autumn, I guess they were right
