Cars vs. Snow

Cars vs. Snow: Cars lose. And we have to dig them out.
And now, let’s get back to digging cars from the snow – again… although, the more you dig them out, the more white stuff seems to fall on them and bury them back under:

When your neighbour won’t move his car… use laser snow removal!:

Enough is enough! -

A nasty surprise awaits…- especially if you forgot to close your sunroof

Maybe if you prepare for a snowfall with a structure like this… it will be easier on your car:

Snow drifts are quite common on the roads of Alberta and Saskatchewan – the last storm of January 11 stranded hundreds of motorists near Calgary and Strathmore:

Recent storm on Lake Shore Drive in Chicago (no jokes about a bad LSD trip, please):

Here is the famous Snow Road in Japan: Tateyama Kurobe Alpine Route, in the mountains of Toyama Prefecture – in some places the snow is 20 meters thick!

Snow in Italy can be also pretty grand: here is a small car near a snowdrift in the Gran Sasso mountains:

Now you can really appreciate this artwork (an installation by Ivan Puig, Spain):

Snow Monster (is there a car inside it, too?):

Interesting “blob”-shaped snow monsters stand on guard in the Russian Ural Mountains:

If your car could be made of ice, you’d have no problem:

You think you had enough ghastly silence in your snow-buried neighborhood? Compare it to this Siberian ghost town somewhere in Kolyma, and shudder:

Snow removal surprise:

Show some shoveling ingenuity:

Once you’re done shoveling outside, make sure to close the door after coming in! -

And be careful when getting into a snowed-over outhouse – the roof might cave in! -

Finally, after all these stressful and upsetting pictures, here is a reminder that snow – even lots of snow – can be actually nice and beautiful:
