    I wish now that I'd gone back out with a proper camera rather than just using my iphone.

    they will In Russia some people leave cars nearby their houses for whole winter. Some of them dont use cars during the winter and dont want to pay for car parks, some of them cant get out their cars after great snowfalls, give up and leave cars under the snow. There are a lot of reasons. In spring snow melts and set the cars free and drivers start using them again. Of course leaving cars outside for the whole long winter is damaging for carriers, but some people just dont care p.s. i am not one of them, I leave my baby in teh garage

    Got this from my sister on Friday, 9th March, which should answer your question,
    "Well, they finally de frosted this week. The man who owned the one with the roof box on it was on the local news. He claimed that he had gone to attend a birthday party on February 3rd, and thought there were a lot of free parking places by the lake, so he parked there. More fool him, there are never any parking spaces by the lake. If you want to go for a coffee, you can end up parking 15 minutes away and walking down. Anyway, finally defrosted, the news filmed him getting into his car, placing his key in the ignition, turning his key, and...................................starting the thing first time. Must be like cryogenics for cars."

    Worth checking out this album on The Atlantic. There are a few photos from that lake and surrounding areas - really impressive pictures that make me cold just looking at them!
