I live in a part of the world where we have snow 8 months a year. Right now we have about 40 cm and it's freezing, -22 degrees celsius (-7.6 Fahrenheit), but it's ok. It'll get worse in december/january/february until it gets better in march... There's always a period where we're down to -30-35 degrees. It usually only last for a week or so, but still... sad.gif

Here's a photo from my home town, this is an old wooden castle just outside of town...

Looks like the same amount of snow we got here today. And it will keep on snowing to the next week.

When I left from work there was 2 buses on the bus stop. Crashed to each other. Also trains were late, cruise ships to Estonia and Sweden were really late. All police told people to leave cars home.

But finally we got snow here - but too much that we can handle.

Nice pics.

I hate the cold, it's only fun when you are inside with some good food and a fireplace, then it can be as cold as it wants outside.

We don't get as much snow as in north Sweden, Finland and most often not as much as those pictures from Russia.
But today 1st of December I woke up to the first little cover of white this winter. I ride my bike 7 kilometers to work, so I hope to have no snow on monday. I'd fit better in Spain or maybe California this time of year.

Im with ulrik on this topic.I hate the cold!
My sure way method to deal/survive the snow and cold is to avoid it. It looks nice from behind the window standing by a heater:P
I grew up in a sub-tropical climate where 12 degrees C was a freezing winters day!, but nowadays im living in Germany. Everytime the winter and snow rolls on in I always have that moment of thinking, "Why the hell im i here"! blink.gif

Ha, you don't live that far from Rottweil. I heard you guys at the Bodensee even got more snow than we did this week.
