local glacier


Parking is fun! So entirely absorbing in fact that time just flies and before you know it a month or so has passed. Notice the radio antenna still peeking out of this snow cover.

Does the car start after days of such a treatment?

Bernt Seipl said...

Yours, Per ?

WOW! I hope they don't need their car in a hurry. It will surely take some time to get it out of there.

Ice is generally more of a difficulty than snow. In this case I suppose there's a bit of both to struggle with.

VP: As long as the battery is good. Having "rested" for a few weeks may in fact put it in a better position than cars that have to start every morning and then maybe only drive a short daily distance. Their batteries won't last.

Bernt Seipl: Nope. Don't believe I've ever parked in Haninge.

Luis Gomez: It will take some excavation and a bit of patience.

Incidentally, we're in for a wintry storm this week so the owner of this car may want it to remain docked for a while yet.

I can sense an avalanche. Stay clear.

Funky shot! Reminds me of a snowstorm we had in Chicago when my kids were little...I've got photos of them playing and jumping off the top of my car!

Fortunately, I no longer have to worry about such stuff!

Tinsie said...

Hehe that's what I call A LOT of snow :-)

JM said...

Local glacier! LOL! And it seems another cold wave is coming... well, coming to Portugal, I believe these allready are its effects out there!

Shot very close to a cool artwork this photo.

Officially -10C tonight at Bromma airport.

Claes: Bara det nu inte frusit fast för mycket...

cieldequimper: Makes it sound like a new sport... extreme parking !

Jacob: Gee, what happened to the roof of that car with kids climbing on it?

arabesque: Go to the nearest and warmest café and quietly await spring? ;)

Tinsie: And we got more the other day, after this was shot.

JM: Stay warm! I suppose your glaciers will be few and far-between though.

Steffe: Wasn't aware of that. Father Frost kept me busy.

Again, thanks everyone.

It's called Naturmaskin.

Per Stromsjo said...

Ah yes, I do remember spotting that structure in the snow but it somehow didn't catch my imagination. Thanks for the update!
