Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
There has a been a popular show on TV here called "Ice Road Truckers", about the tribulations of hardy trucker types who drive over a specially made road over frozen lakes in alaska.

I happened to see a bit of it while browsing and they mentioned "temps down to -18 celcius" which, previously in the UK, would have caused a collective shudder of "how can they live when it's that cold ?". But today I just thought, "oh, it was colder than that in liverpool last night and that's just a coupla hundred miles away"

alaska ? It's for wimps :-))

keep to the Fen Causeway
