  1. Okay, this is a warning for the next bad weather warning.

    We will see what will happen.

    How many people hear of this warning?? and redruce their activities with cars and only go outside if it is really necessary.
    How much cars must stop because they are not able to drive in the snow. or perhaps with ice on the streets.

    I lived many years in Germany and France, i also need for 20 km 15 hours because snow on the streets, because other cars stand there and the snow vehicles couldn’t gotheir.

    The streets in small towns or villages were not cleaned, only they try to clean the main streets
    For your street and your house you have look for your self

    here the people wanted to get money from the state or the owner from the highway, because we have problems with the snow.

    I’m a greekabd live since a few yeara again in my homeland, but i can’t understand the most people and also not our government

  2. Looks like geoengineering planned by Erdogan, maybe.
