Here’s a slice of life in Poland for you. I thought I was walking home from work in nice weather, and then I noticed the horizon getting dark, so I decided to hop on a tram. This tram then rode into the middle of one of the worst storms I ever experienced, rendering it impossible for me to get out at my stop. See what happened after that and watch lightning flash follow lightning flash from a rainblurred Warsaw tram window.

Some 5 miles away, in Ursynow, the residents had 15 minutes between dry ground and knee high water ruining their cars. Nobody had seen the like for over 120 years.
