Well I was talking to a Bulgarian yesterday and he said that he had not seen as much snow as we have had this winter in over 5 years :Snow window:

The first real snow fell on the 19th December, we remember this well as we were on the motorway going to Sofia, and had got as far as Chirpan, when we were suddenly engulfed by the white stuff. We had to drive at less than 40 KPH as the visibility was so bad. The very next day we heard that there was a red alert for most of Bulgaria.

The next real snow came on the 12th Jan and although quite plentiful it did not last too long and was soon gone :Snow window:The last lot came on 25th Jan and is the most snow we have seen in the 5 and a half years that we have been here. Today being Wednesday 30th Jan is the first day we will venture out since last Friday. :Snow window:

How has this winters weather affected you?

Still spring is around the corner as there is no more significant snow forecast s s s

Same here - much less snow than usual so far. Its been a relatively mild winter. Interesting that even down south there has been snow and strong winds. Thought it was supposed to be milder down there. Bgbazz seems to be in the mildest place in Plovdiv.

Must agree it has been a very mild winter :m4:but this last lot of snow that we had was a huge amount compared to other years :C:

I understand how you feel Tony. This is our first Winter here and so far we have been trapped in our village three times, there was no reason to panic as we had stocked up with food and drink. We have a small shop here in the village, but the owner really doesn't seem to stock very much in groceries, but we have been OK and wait our moment until we can get to our nearest town to do more shopping. s

I popped up to the farm yesterday and it seemed very strange..at this time last year some of my fields were under a metre of snow, but now they are mostly bare of any snow at all! In previous years, we could walk across our frozen river at this time of the year, now you would have to swim. I'm not saying that it isn't cold, but we have had no snow worthy of mention, no high winds worth talking about and very little rain..very strange!!

Even my wifes little Toyota Yaris, which traditionally spends the winter in the garage, has been used daily since last March..nothing here to even bother it.

I still think that it will come and when it does.....

We here in the Varna area have had some snow but not to much. It's lying on the ground at the moment but the main roads are clear.My first Winter here was last Winter and we all know how Artic that was so this Winter seems like semi Spring compared!!
