Meanwhile in Prague:

Water from a ruptured pipeline (a nice thick one, 120cms in diameter) has flooded 400 meters of eastbound carriageway in southern part of the city ring during the night. I guess you can imagine the result, as temperature dropped to -18°C...

Something else: take a look a this sign at the Como - Chiasso border. Okay, I already knew Italians were horrible in speaking english, but the english translation on this sign says about the opposite from what the sign is meaning.

Codice della Strada should be translated in Highway Code. Road Act has a completely different meaning (law related to road construction). The term act refers to a single law, not a collection of laws such a code.

Picture was shared by many on Facebook. It seems to be the weather from Romanian National Television .
I didn't see any picture from you, the bashing was because of the big cold that comes

Temperatures can drop to -20 this night in the Netherlands, which is quite rare for a maritime climate like ours.

23:00 hrs

I kinda like it . 10 cms of snow (yes, I know that there is way more snow in Romania and surrounding countries but I don't care ) and temperature below zero. I rather have this than temperatures of 25-30 degrees..... I think I'm gonna move to Norway or something

-110 sounds quite more unusual for poor freezing people in Timisoara

What do you mean 'sorry'? I'm glad that that heat is over there and not here in The Netherlands

But that is an astonishing* view

* I probably spelled that wrong...
