026/2011 yes, there is a car there

A common sight along our streets. Cars in various stages of getting buried under snow. Looks as if this one is a beetle. Might be somebody’s summer car, so it doesn’t have to be dug out, but can wait for the snow the disappear in spring. In built and densely populated areas, the masses of snow are creating big problems. Modern man and nature at odds.

At long last some sunshine – light and shadow playing on the snow. What an instant change in my mood and energy levels!

    Unbelievable – at least for us in Australia. What a lot of work Winter is, what with all that digging out and shovelling snow. I would be tempted to stay inside the house all Winter.

      So would I, if only I could! You are right – winter is a lot of extra work. Usually we need to leave our house about 10 mins earlier every morning to deal with the digging and shovelling. No fun after a while!

    I can see that golden glow. Here we have to keep our cars off the street when they are clearing snow – so no one can leave a “summer car” on the street. We have been spared a lot of snow so far this winter – but I would love to get out on my snow shoes.

      Where do people put their cars if they live in a flat? Over here, not everybody has a garage or yard.
      I’ve never tried snow shoes – they must be fun!

        When the signs go up for street cleaning, people have to move cars from one spot to another. Otherwise you risk having your car towed away. Sometimes the city opens up lots for free temporarily so the streets can be plowed. It can be quite a challenge finding parking if you don’t have your own space.

    ….And it looks like a poor VW Bug! That’s a lot of snow!

    It must be hibernating! 🙂 The sunny skies do give a little respite!

    A hibernating beetle indeed 🙂
