This year's, June, repeated rainfall thunderstorms, limited the number of tourists coming to the Bieszczady Mountains. Near our centre, Sosnowa Aleja, soaked land slumped, causing a breach under the construction of the terrace of the neighbour’s house. A large amount of water flowing from the mountains also threatened the other buildings. All-night vigilance of the owners and their hard work of endangered houses helped to protect farms against their destruction. The Hoczewka river flowing through our area has gained the highest water level in recent years (see photo 11 and 12). The threat was the increasing water pressure caused by trees blocking it at the bridge supports. Rapid intervention of the fire brigade prevented other damage.

The warm days of March 2020 revived the Bieszczady nature. At Sosnowa Aleja, we started extracting birch sap, which is known for its health-promoting properties. Drinking birch sap can help the body cure and prevent many conditions. The most important advantages: it supports the body in the fight against viruses, alleviates severe rheumatic pains, has analgesic and antipyretic effects. After a few warm days, frosts stopped birch sap secretion, but we hope to resume drinking this healthy sap soon.

As a result of the strong winds that hit the center of Sosnowa Aleja in the first decade of March 2019, many trees and branches were broken in the whole of our alley. In addition, the wind brought to our area broken trees, branches, shrubs and a lot of autumn leaves from the forest bordering Pine Alley. We had to remove them very quickly and restore the functioning of our centre. After a few days the piles of branches accumulated were completely cleaned.

The beginning of February 2018 pleasantly surprised the children and tourists staying in Sosnowa Aleja with a sudden change in weather. Two-day, heavy snowfall created a 60 cm cover. The children were happy to participate in snow games and they have fun. The result of such a large amount of snow was also broken branches, torn and damaged power lines and non-functional cell networks. The temperature dropped to minus 22 degrees Celsius. Despite this, tourists did not complain, considering such a change of weather as a great adventure. They asked if in the previous years of winter, they were just as beautiful as the present.

At the beginning of December 2017 much snow appeared in Bieszczady mountains. Abundant white fluff covered the grey of the end of this year's autumn. A few days' snowfall brought a lot of joy to our tourists and to our dog Dusiek. It loves winter fun. But the snow was too heavy for the coniferous trees which led to the breaking of many branches and uprooting coniferous trees from the roots. Despite these natural anomalies, the Bieszczady mountains look beautiful in winter scenery and promising for winter sports enthusiasts and tourists.

On the 9th of April 2017 some people living in Sosnowa Aleja had a short trip to Slovakia, not far from our place. Going there, they stopped in Radoszyce at the source whose water is said to have healing properties. The legend tells us that 140 years ago there was the girl with a serious illness. Nobody could help her recover, so she went to the forest and after spending there many weeks, she stopped at the Barbura stream. Mother of God appeared to her and told the girl to wash in the water of the source. The girl did it and she recovered. Since then many people not only from Poland but also from Slovakia and Ukraine has been visiting the source, because the water is known from its healing power. At the end of 20th century the chapel was rebuilt. Now, the religious services are held in it. The source was also encased in bricks and stones. Our tourists were impressed by the history of that source and the taste of its water.
