Snowpocalypse: Russia

Posted: January 22, 2013 by blinkenzomg in Uncategorized

I really just wanted to share this link: It seems there’s been a bit of snow in Russia – nothing a trusty Ural motorbike couldn’t handle though I reckon.

Edit: “The polar circle city of Norilsk [about 500km east of Salekhard, where we will be riding] has seen snowfall build to a height of more than 10 feet, and entire apartment blocks have been barricaded by snow overnight, requiring city workers to dig passageways through the snow banks.

Meanwhile, icicles up to three feet in length have formed off every building ledge, breaking at random and causing a lethal hazard for pedestrians below.”
