Didn't England get some snow this winter? Something like the largest snowfall since 10 years?
This winter in Poland has been quite snowy. We spent last weekend hiking in the mountains, up to our armpits in fluff!! Even in Warsaw we got 10cm this morning, a lot of people thought spring would come sooner if they switched to summer tires. They took the train today...

Yeah, we got some, though where I live it wasnt that good, a couple of inches at most. I did get some decent pics of it though which is always good, but nothing compared to the the one in this thread.

TC - that's a sweet pic... looks at first glance like someone folded a sheet of dough on your bumper LOL.

I thought to myself "Was someone using a Buick for a Pizza oven?"

How would one even deal with that ice? Just wait it out till it warms up? Thankfully I've never seen more than 1/4" of ice in a single storm here.

I've seen those ice storm pictures before and I actually think they are a thing of beauty.
