The Polish people are about as tough as they come. They will hunker down and get through this as they always do. It’s a terrible loss for the family who lost their child in the storm.

If the good people of Poland have the willingness to withstand the weight of the illegitimate EU bearing down on them, they will be fine with a minor inconvenience. As long as they can stay warm then maybe they can even focus on the true meaning of Christmas with their families without all of the distractions.
