    Default So you think it is cold here.

    We don,t know the meaning of cold over here.
    Take a look at these photos.
    They are a place called Jurmala, it is in Latvia.
    These pictures are of "their seaside resort".
    We are standing on the frozen sea The Baltic sea. It was cold I can tell you. Good fun though.
    They had No problem driving in the snow either ( they are used to it).
    From the beging of December till the end of March. They have to fit snow tyres. these have "knobbly" tread with metal studs in them. They then drive around with no problem. I was amazed to see them go round corners at the same speed we would do in the dry. They have total control over their cars.
    Now for the photos.

    OMG we think we're worse off here. Always the case though, but if we had such drastic weather, then i am sure we'd be on studded tyres too as everyday use.

    Awesome pics & hard to comprehend that these pics ore the frozen waters.

    Latvia is brilliant. I was in Riga last October! Corrupt as any ex-Soviet Country, but really nice place. Wish I had gone there a little later in the year now :P

    And yes the UK is pathetic when it comes to dealing with a snowflake.. lol

    No problem Don. Larisa poured copious amounts of Vodka into my mouth. That did the trick.
