  1. Oh wow, these places must have experienced a terrible snowstorm. As much as I love snow (especially since I get to skate and sled during snow seasons), I hate it when it gets worse.

  2. My mother inlaw would say that a lot of beggars died in Germany during winter season because it's too cold and they can't resist the negative degrees Celsius temperature.
