Build better isolated houses, people... and remember, when it's cold outside, you need to crank up the heating.

Apparently it's -33C in some parts of Germany, and in Poland, people are freezing to death overnight. What the hell world.

Homeless, drunk people, you might add. It's so fucking cooooold anyway. My girlfriend lives a 5 minute drive from my place and when I get into my car I can't even hold the steering wheel. Gloves FTW. I'm 55 kg of walking terror, so my hands are thin and very soft. So even those fucking thick gloves can't stop them from freezing. I also can't drive in my winter boots (manual gearbox, bitches!) and my usual shoes get soaked even after a quick walk on snow. I even hate doing toilet stuff in winter, because the toilet seat is always cold! And as I'm writing this post, it just started to snow again. FFFFFFFFFFFFFUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU-

EDIT: Also, the sun started to shine, so I guess it's melting time, bitches.

It took me over three hours to get home from work today. It's a journey that is less than 20 miles. Snow can fuck off now pliz.

Torp had good points there... Here in Finland this kind of extreme conditions happen regularly so everyone knows how to deal with them on home or on the road. But sure, sometimes weather might do some tricks... For example I almost crashed my car twice in slow speed (around 40 hm/h) at city centre because my tires just lost their grip. They are "bit" weared down winter tires with spikes BUT thing is that my right side fronttire empties over time (there's minor leak somewhere) which had led to situation where front tires had 0,4 bar difference in pressure. That lead to situation where grip was reduced significantly and it was heavily left sided. Car was still driveable but it acted differently and it surprised me twice... I had bit luck and I drove carefully (because I knew road condition was horrible) and thus was able to brake 2 cm before hitting other car's rear bumber :D It was quite a adrenaline rush though when car just slided like sled for ten or some metres - I knew there were no grip but luckily I started to slow down before car before me had to stop which gave me longer distance to brake when related to it... Also it's mandatory in Finland to train for driving in slippery conditions when doing driver's license so I knew how to act and predict situations like that. Even knowing that and staying at control it still made me almost crap my pants :D

Situation improved greatly after fixing tirepressures, but I still need to drive carefully (like anyone in this kind of road conditions). Oh, and refill that right side tire once per two- or three days :D

Of course you need to drive more carefully and slightly slower in slippery conditions.

The bus drives back home here at my parents apparently can't drive under slippery conditions, though, from stories I've heard. Other than that, most people manage fairly well. Not as well as further north, but well enough.

Funny thing is, two days ago it was -17'C around noon, today it was 2'C. And the TV people say it will be 6'C tomorrow. A pretty strange amplitude for Poland.

More than 16 inches of snow here. And I haven't had a white christmas since '96!

I heard the cold weather is a temporary gift from Russia with love. So so much for global warming not happening.

I've built two piles of snow already. And one huge snowball. And a wall of snow. I haven't been good at making complete, traditional snow items. Which is because the snow is so rare in coastal Norway.
Just close your eyes and keep your mind wide open.

Beck's is the second worst german beer (after Oettinger) :(
We're open to such things, we've even talked many times about doing it with Inja, but in a way that's redundant because we can already get Erica

Note: The person behind these bottles of beer is crazy. Approach at your own risk.
