007/2011 drowning in snow

007/2011 drowning in snow, originally uploaded by rosipaw.

It’s getting from bad to worse! No end to the white stuff coming down from the clouds!

I felt almost claustrophobic walking in the street today – the pavement and the street is getting narrower and narrower.

The snow cover on our roof will soon be considerably thicker than at any point last winter. Funny formations on the gutter, though – makes me think of gargoyles 🙂

Even here in Finland, people in towns are now struggling to clear the snow, in order to still be able to manoeuvre in the streets. In Helsinki, they are now looking for big enough underground tunnels to store the mountains of snow. Two birds with one stone: most importantly, clear the streets, and secondly, as an innovative added bonus, possibly use the snow for district air-conditioning next summer.

A real-life problem calling for a creative solution. A powerful formula to remember in the classroom, too!
