If you heard that Europe is suffering from intense cold this winter, it’s definitely true. The snow on the ground hasn’t melted yet since last month and it seems to be snowing some nights that when I go out in the morning snow is covering the ground anew. It could have been better if it rained sometimes to keep the snow from becoming ice, because it’s really hard to walk on icy ground. I remember hubby’s brother broke his ankle when he tripped over a slippery surface about five years ago. And I don’t want this to happen to me so I am being careful when I’m out, especially that the snow that’s been on the ground for days can be treacherous.
It’s not only the ground can be icy with this extreme cold but the waters in the lakes and canals. The intensity of cold can in fact seen on waters. Just like what I saw a week ago in Gothenburg’s harbour canal, its surface was covered with ice. Then someone might have wanted to know if the ice was compact and threw a shopping cart in the canal. I had no idea how someone did it cos the shopping cart stood as if it was placed purposely that way.
The canal was quite full of rubbish that day and it was not a pretty sight. Anyhow, the one who threw that shopping cart wasn’t a fool to take a walk or jump on, or he or she must have been frozen to death, lol! The ice was not stable and it would break with heavier weight.

I always want a bigger image when I see a photograph like this. Very nicely taken photograph Marlene. The shopping cart going to take a frozen death or may be a new home 🙂

Thank you so much, Arafat Hossain. I forgot that I have an image viewer plugin so now I’ve made the image bigger in size when it’s clicked.
Nobody knows where it is now. It disappeared. 🙂

You’re welcome. Keep your vault safe or I may rob you, lol!
Must be fun to have an icy ride on that shopping cart! haha
The kids would love the ride, if it’s possible. 🙂
BAka tinetesting yung ice kung mababasag. Kaya lang ay puwede naman siya sa iba magdaan eh.

Sa kabila ng bridge pwede sanang dumaan kasi may hagdan. Pero diyan wala, kaya pano kaya napunta ang cart.

Not really good to have it everyday when you’re used to warm climate.

That is hilarious to see. You think the ice isn’t strong enough to support the weight of a person though?

No, at least not when part of the canal is still water. But when it’s solid ice all over perhaps it can support human weight.
Btw, thanks for dropping by. Really appreciate it. I can see you’ve got interesting blog.
Palaisipan kung paano napunta yung shopping cart jan haha. Teka, nacurious ako how that canal looks if it’s not covered with ice, so I googled it and found this pic – http://upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/3/33/G%C3%B6teborg_03.jpg
wow ang galing, ang resourceful naman ni amor.. yun na yun nga… siguro wide angle lang yung lens na ginamit, para kasing malapad eh…

Yes, yes! That’s the other side of the canal, just opposite the bridge in my photo. Yan din ang pinakamalaking side na pwedeng umupo sa hagdanan lalo na kapag summer. 🙂
