Late icy winter

We had the warmest January in history (or at least since we measure temperature here in Slovenia) and some plants already started to bloom, but here we go, winter arrived a bit late… It’s not as cold as it usually is in winter, but we had some snow few days ago, and now we have this icy rain we call “žled” and everything is just freezing! Cars are frozen all over, you usually can’t even unlock them, all the trees are covered with ice, streets are slippery… It’s crazy!
Most of our country is just covered with snow at the moment, but the worst problem is that trees are just falling down and at some places they say every few seconds new tree falls, sometimes on the streets, cars, on electic power lines… That’s why many roads are closed, because they just can’t remove all the trees so fast and also it is dangerous, because trees could fall on cars or people. And in many towns and villages they are without electricity, because of such large damage on power lines.
Where I live, we are quite lucky, we only had an electic black-out for about one hour last night, and not many trees are broken, though we still have a lot of ice. I would go out and take some more photos of this weird weather but… but… but… I just hate this weather! =D And it’s raining… I’m full of excuses, so yeah, probably I’ll just stick to these three photos I did last night. Maybe, just maybe I’ll take my camera and take some more photos, but don’t count on it too much… =D
