Winter

In January 1st, early in the morning it started snowing. And did for about 48 hours. We have about 30cm of a new snow and this is more than enough for a city – main streets are clean and safe for driving but out of them…. :left:
I was going to visit my parents and brother, they live about 1km from my place and it looked like this:

Tomorrow I went out for a walk, I was tired of sitting at home and even the snow was still falling and it was about -6C, I visited park in center of Zemun and bank of Danube. My intention was to make as much photographs as my camera allow me, but coldness emptied batteries soon so I ended up with only few of them 😦


The main paths were cleaned of snow, even benches were available πŸ™‚

This morning was amazing – I have seen the sun first time after month and a half of fog, clouds and snow.

The day was beautiful but very cold and windy – KoΕ‘ava, as we call this wind started this morning and with -7C it was freezing outside.
A lot of my coleagues are on two weeks holiday and being alone in the office felt good – no noise, loud conversation and nervous customers :up:

Winter….

  6. SittingFox says:

    Fantastic! I'm very jealous indeed! :DOf course, I appreciate that snow isn't always a very practical thing to happen, especially if you're going travelling, but it looks stunning. That sunrise is fabulous :yes:

  7. gdare says:

    Thanks Adele :DToday afternoon it started raining, and with temperature below zero and a strong wind everything is frozen, even the raindrops on my window. It will be tricky to get out tomorrow πŸ˜€

  8. ALLY_G says:

  10. CedarFox says:

    I wish we had some snow here like that again :)That sunrise is so nice :up:

  11. gdare says:

    Thanks :happy:With all rain we have since yesterday, the snow will end up as half melted ice, dangerously slippery :yikes:

  12. gdare says:

    πŸ˜€

  13. attilasoul says:

    Wow, that's a lot of snow you've got already.We had snow yesterday and when I went to bed everything was white outside. When I woke up it was all gone again. I don't mind that. :DGreat shots. :up:

  14. gdare says:

    It will be of no use, believe me πŸ™‚

  15. attilasoul says:

    Bring a walking stick if you go out then! πŸ˜†

  16. Vecana says:

    Waooow, you weren't lazy on holiday. πŸ™‚ I like the sunrise pics! How can't I never catch the sun like you do? :up:

  17. gdare says:

    It was in friday :rolleyes::D

  18. Vecana says:

    Hahaha, yeah thats right, mine is looking south and I don't get up so early except in working days. πŸ˜€

  19. gdare says:

    Maybe your window is not on the east side :left::eyes: πŸ˜›

  20. Capegirl says:

    so no stilts for Darko on those roads? πŸ˜†

  21. gdare says:

    No, it is too slippery πŸ˜€

  22. dannii says:

    Man I love snow, thanks a lot for these pics! :yes:It helps me coold down in these hot summer days! :up:Hey, how are you doing Darko? πŸ™‚

  23. martinouellette says:

    oh.. I see you got a bit of snow? But.. do you expect a storm this winter?:rolleyes:I like the last pic! :up:

  24. gdare says:

    @Dannii – in hot summer days we want a touch of winter and in winter…. I envy you for a summer you have :lol:I am doing fine, thank you :)@Martin – ok, I know these few flakes cannot be compared to what you have in Canada; we have light storm last week, southern, in south Serbia and Bulgaria it was much stronger, taken few lives and caused a lot of problems; do you expect strong storm soon?

  25. martinouellette says:

    It's the worst winter ever. We normally have 2-3 big storms per winter. Sometimes none..We got 5 until now and winter officially started Dec.20th :insane:And thanks to global warming and weird stuff it's 10Β°C today.. ultra foggy.Who knows, probably in 4-5 days we'll be at -25Β°C!

  26. gdare says:

    Wow, this is a serious winter :eyes: I remember a story of some wind that blows during winter, my friends who live now in Canada has told me that air is full of small particles of ice and it cuts skin with small wounds…. Is it true?

  27. attilasoul says:

    -25Β°C? :faint:

  28. gdare says:

    The lowest temperature in Belgrade, as I can remember was -18C and when I was in army I experienced -22C, few days in a row. When the air is dry this is not big problem, but air humidity in Belgrade is higher and when the wind starts during cold days….. :faint:

  29. martinouellette says:

    The coldest I felt was -37Β°C I think… without wind it's not that bad.But here the meteo guys like to add the "windchill factor" to make it more dramatic. It only concerns the "live" organisms. (the water wont freeze faster) so you can reach -40,45Β°C but that happens once or twice per winter at night.*I never got any wound caused by ice particles. πŸ˜‰

  30. attilasoul says:

    We had -4Β°C the other day, but the meteorologists said that because of the strong wind it would feel as if it was -18Β°C. I tell you, I nearly froze my ass off! :left:

  31. martinouellette says:

    oh.. :right:ok.When cold, "shake it" to warm it up.

  32. attilasoul says:

    Excellent advice. It wasn't naked though. :left:

  33. martinouellette says:

    Here is my advice,Never go out "ass naked".

  44. Rea's Community says:

    good luck that there is no snow here

  45. attilasoul says:

    You can keep your snow, Darko. In fact, you can have mine too if I get any! :yes:

  46. martinouellette says:

    I could put truck loads on ebay….

  47. gdare says:
