And sadly, I have yet to see any ladies wearing shorts during the winter.
They are smarter than that.

Wow, you guys are really getting nailed by mother nature. I have heard nothing on the news about the weather you Bulgarians are suffering through.

Are those pictures of your home town?

On behalf of Canada, I wish everyone in BG a safe and rapid return to normal conditions.

Take care of yourself Borislav.

Pictures are from other parts of the country ... My town is situated in a field surrounded by mountains, so here we have not a strong wind … only snow … but it is not possible to reach my University - roads are closed, trains are not going … tomorrow it will be the same. Tomorrow it will be 15 deg below zero, after – again 20 deg below zero … I can not imagine what it will happen, when the south wind will begin blowing … I'll be at home ...

Danube river is down ...

Austin, I can not find the right word … it is not tank, we name it “armor car” – the armor is not thicker than 2 centimeters (1 inch = 2,54 cm) . We have a big plant for production of such vehicles. Usually it is equipped with a cupola machine gun and it transports 8 foot soldiers to the front line.

Other modification has a heavy 6 inches gun on it – we call it self-propelled gun. The one in the picture it is attended for “civil purpose” – to reach remote places, or in case of deep snow or flood … In the case now it is used to transport woman in child-birth to a hospital …

When I was in the atmy long years ago, I have trained on a little different type of such a monster - for 8 driving hours ... down ... believe me, it is not a pleasure to manage it ... No any visibility, inside it is as narrow as you can imagine …

I understand it's unpleasant but I would still like to drive one once.
