This was the view I had all day on our street. My camera is not the culprit, it is cold and foggy ! I hardly could see the house in front this morning !
The snow is melting slowly, but the road is still slippery and as you can see, the city collects our taxes but doesn't collect the snow or do anything to clean the side streets. Apparently they ran out of salt ! I think I should ask the mayor's wife if she has some salt left in her kitchen.
Meanwhile it's almost impossible to walk and you can't park your car on the snow hills at the side of a street, you would never get out of there. The parkings of the supermarkets are still full of snow and if you have to push a trolley, eat some spinach before.
The restaurants and movie theatres are complaining about the loss of money during Christmas, they had so many cancellations because the people couldn't go out. Christmas shopping was also a catastrophe for the shops. My friend's daughter and husband spent Christmas Eve in the airport of Berlin ! Their flight was cancelled, too much snow in Berlin, and they were not the only once spending Christmas in airports !
However the hospitals have a lot of success, the emergency is full of broken legs, arms and I don't no what. It's like in the ER series, only we don't have a George Clooney !
But I am an optimist ! Once in a blue moon the sun will shine again and the dirty snow melt !
