The winter has really arrived in Blagoevgrad, it wants to compensate for two years and there is incredibly much snow, unbelievable.

These are typical commuter trains, because they can accelerate faster, and thus are more appropriate for routes with more trainstations.
Same like here, we have some commute trains, operated by Northern Rail, some of them are really comfortable North of England is quite dense urban area, so there are quite a lot of connections

It shows 31 cm on the balcony, outside it might be 35 cm, I donīt know when Blagoevgrad ever had so much snow, it should freeze tonight so that the snow gets frozen and then it will take a long time to melt.

This is the train type that often stops in Abcoude:



Or these old shitty ones:



But these also pass, once every two hours in each direction



@Radi: Nice balcony! When are you going to polish it again?

@x-type: unfortunately I don't have a balcony. So I can't show it

Their map does look quite dense, indeed. This is your area I believe

I will definatly polish it again spring when I am here again, because it needs a newer paint and the surface has to be smoothend because itīs quite rough now, then two or three layers of thin zincpaint and it will shine even more.

@Chris: plus a few degrees and you'll have the Netherlands. It will be quite cold when I bike to school next wednesday morning (and leave at 7:30). I hope my gloves are warm enough. In case they're not, I won't be able to spam here anymore

I am wondering if I should remove a bit snow from the balcony or if the snow is light and the balcony canīt fall down, but I tink the snow isnīt heavy so I donīt have to remove it.

I don't think your balcony would collapse with 30 cms of snow

Lol, only Renault has ever been produced in Slovenia. Not even Zastava (Serbian car). Though there's also a factory producing buses in Maribor.

It was funny when I once drove by Grindelwald Bus to Grindelwald (Switzerland), and I didn't even know I was driving in a Slovenian bus.

Grindelwald is great, did you take the stairs to that glacier? I heard they had to extend the stairs very often due to the melting of the glacier. I believe it was one of the few glaciers that extended so deep into the valley (barely above 1400 m or so).

Grindelwald, isn't that the famous wizard that Albus Dumbledore fought against?

Seriously, glaciers are beautiful. And that they're withdrawing is not because of global warming, btw. It's a natural cyclus, but the melting just goes quicker because of global warming. About glaciers that extend into a valley: in Alaska I saw a glacier that almost extended all the way to the lowest point in a valley. My dad and I were very surprised to see a glacier extended so long. I have made a picture of it, but it's on my computer, which unfortunately can't be used now
