Nothing is wrong, just I forgot to put a or a [/ironic] after the pic . Anyway, I was not pointing to this street, but to the one in the background which is for pedestrians only. And believe me, the superhighway Z-40/E90 is running a hundred of meters to the right of the photo, which was taken from a bus.

Anyway, I know people who have flown over either Afghanistan or Iraq. My parents some years ago flew over the former.

If you fly to or through UAE or Qatar (with any of popular Arabic airlines) you will almost surely fly over Iraq, Iran, Afghanistan and/or Syria. At least in my opinion Iran is the most magnificent from the air.

So? There are only 3 cm, easily drivable with my pretty slicked summer tires.

I'm not talking about driving, I just don't like snow in October.

I must say I find it slightly amusing that you people are all worked up about an inch of snow. We're preparing for this:

New Jersey governor Christi warned that people may be out of power for 7 - 10 days.

Something like that is unthinkable in the Netherlands, I can't remember the last time the power went out for more than 5 seconds.

Until 10-15 years ago I remember having no power for several minutes because of bad weather, now fortunately not anymore. The only times it happens is when I have too many electrical devices switched on.

It happens here once or twice a year and it can last up to an hour. Once I remember it lasted for some five hours.

The Netherlands has the advantage of soft soil, which makes it affordable to put all local utilities underground, away from weather interference. Only high-voltage lines are above ground, but we don't have windstorms or tornadoes strong enough to topple those frequently. We do have Apache helicopters that crash into transmission towers though... And I must admit that local outages (neighborhood-scale) do occur from time to time in the Netherlands (mostly after someone hit a line when digging into the ground), but they don't last very long.

But what about when the levees break?

Czech record for the most people inside a standard bus. Set in Brno in 2003. 237 squeezed in there.
More photos archived here. (This one is priceless )

It's one of thousand names the ***** has. But I prefer this Vietnamese restaurant in Paris named Tan Dao Vien, which sounds like "Te han dado bien" (They have hit you well ).

Change V with B and it sounds the same in Italian.
