It’s now secret that the winter of 2009/10 will be remembered long after others as the winter of snow, ice and devastation in Europe.

We’ve discovered that after the initial excitement of the ‘winter wonderland’ and the 100s of pictures you take, the snow closes down normal life, clogs up the roads and when thawing, turns everything into a mass of black ice – not good for walking on, driving on or trying to move over.

The supposedly harmless and photogenic icicle is a case in point. It can sheer away from a roof and become a potentially fatal javelin.

So pretty –
