A Snow Slamming

I've seen people splashed by water where it has dammed up on tram tracks. I once received a good splashing by a passing car just down below The Highrise. Fortunately in Australia we don't really have snow in the areas where the vast population lives.

This looks quite nasty, in Rhinecliff, New York State.

    1. Diane, but quite predictable by those standing there and the authorities. And people who live with snow must know about such things.

  5. what everyone above said.
    Australian snow is the best - you go there and you leave it there and come home.

    1. Margaret, that's what I reckon. You can see the large build up of snow. What do people think will happen when a train comes at speed.

  7. I see that two of the women were filming with their wretched phones; and not looking at the 'real world'. They deserve what they got!

    1. Cro, I doubt any country is worse than Australia for people tuning out from what is happening around them while staring at phone screens.

  8. Have you ever lived through a winter in a cold, wet, snowy country? It makes people cranky, it messes up transport systems and it puts elderly OAPs at risk in their unheated homes.

    Of course in hotter countries we get skin cancers and jelly fish poisoning.

    1. Hels, in the really hot four or five day period we had a few years ago, every day over 40, so many elderly died from heat stress, well over one thousand, I think. Governments should make sure people stay warm and cool in their homes via social security. But honestly, even if heating and cooling were free, some old people would not use it.

  9. Wow. I think that is better than water splashing, you could just wipe off the snow before it melts into your clothes. I sometimes wonder how snowy countries manage to keep going with so many snow days where people can't get to work or school. Surely that must affect businesses negatively.

    1. River, I too wonder about the same. I know roads and footpaths get cleared of snow, and people have personal snow blowers to clear snow from their own paths. Even over five years ago, I remember a Canadian man saying he had a remote control that he could use from inside his home to start his car and warm up and demist the interior and deice the windscreen and back window. They change their car tyres from summer tyres to winter tyres. I don't know the half of it, but yes, very interesting. And as I wrote recently, in Toronto you can get around the city using the underground tunnels.

  10. Wow! That looks pretty amazing! I love snow, but don't see much of it here in NC. I can imagine everyone was shocked to be splashed like that. Hugs...RO

    1. RO, and perhaps not a bad thing that you don't receive much snow.

  11. I know I shouldn't laugh but seriously, who just stands there while a wall of snow advances towards them 😀😀

  13. I'm doing the Amtrak shuffle NYC-DC-NYC in about three weeks time; I hope there will be no snow about then.

    1. That will be interesting to hear about. From blog land, there has been some decent snow falls of late.

    1. Lee, I wonder if the main victim was hurt or just very cross.

  15. That might hurt, but of course you would expect it and those who didn't expect it, are not bright.
