This has been a harsh winter for many parts of the world, with temperatures and weather conditions not seen in decade or centuries. With February slowly ending, we are looking forward to the inevitable milder weather and warmer temperatures. Unfortunately, people living in the eastern parts US are going to have to wait a little longer.
It appears that being hit with the “Siberian Express” which covered most of the country wasn’t enough. US citizens can look forward to another freezing storm blast named ‘Winter Storm Pandora’. The persistent sub-zero temperatures created a frozen kingdom that will make you think of the ice age. Snow and ice have been the cause of many emergencies, devastation and tragedies, affecting thousands of people, yet we still manage to find beauty and even amusement in this seemingly never-ending winter.
