Okay, so this is what we’ve been dealing with here in Kyiv. The first picture is a shot looking up the sidewalk on our trip to the local market.
The sidewalk is solid ice. And not just a thin layer.
Try four inches!
Shopping is always an adventure, but it’s just been a bit more treacherous over the past several weeks.
You can understand why there is some fear of flooding as the weather warms and the ice melts. Thankfully we have a day or two of above-freezing temperatures causing slushy dirty conditions followed by freezing temperatures and a fresh dusting of snow.
Praying for a gradual thaw.
