Quirky Winter Photos
If you are from a warm country without the need of experiencing cold winters - good for you, I guess. But I gotta say, you are also missing out. Yes, the wind might chill you to the bone, and the snow can be tall enough to build a tunnel, if your hands can still function, that is… but it is also a fun time, all those snow fights and snowboarding… and of course, the funny sights that can only be seen in winter. We have compiled a list of those for you - if you are from a cold country, you might find them familiar, if not - you are in for a good laugh.
Ultimate Dad Joke
Think a dad joke is cringy enough? What about a granddad joke? Yes, apparently they do exist, even manifesting in physical forms. As Reddit user widesupermonkey explained, his/her grandfather has been putting up this sign up during the winter for the last five years. I wonder if anyone actually showed up and asked about the snow.
Snow From The North Country
What does this look like? Gorgeous right? Wanna go hiking there? Nope, you cannot do that - because it is not a mountain, but a pile of snow in Minnesota. Ah...Minnesota, where the winds hit heavy on the borderline… where river freezes and summer ends. As Reddit user darktymes pointed out - this is just the parking lot snow pile.
Art is everywhere they say...well, I cannot disagree here. It makes sense if you think about it though, cause when it snows, everything becomes a piece of canvas. I do remember my guilty pleasure of writing different messages on someone else’s windshield when it snows...or drawing something on it at times. This time, is a Spongebob.
Ripped Snow White
A literal Snow White, and the seven mid...dwarfs I mean. Building a snowman takes quite a bit of effort, and building seven of them requires a lot of effort to be honest. So someone must have spent quite some time building them - however, the proportion of the Snow White is a bit strange - it seems like she’s been hitting the gym for the last year.
Snow turns everything into a piece of canvas...but sometimes, less is more, and things are just beautiful the way they are, where you don’t even have to spend effort creating something - you just need a keen eye. For example, this. A serene picture that was taken in Krakow, Poland, look at all those contrasts and movements.
May The Vitamin D Be With You
One of those things that are lacking in cold countries is Vitamin D, where your body produces automatically under sunlight...where there is none in the winter in a cold country. And to receive sunlight to produce Vitamin D, you need to expose your palms and lower legs...I guess?
I will just paste the title from the Reddit user DianWithoutTheE himself. “My dad made this. Sent me a pic and said “it has snow tires.” Dad jokes never get old...but the snow probably does. Still, that is some impressive work though, build an entire car out of snow - I cannot even build a snowman myself.
Another struggle living in a cold country - for those who live in a cold country, I will just paste the advice here from Reddit user Egobeliever “Ensure that all water fixtures are turned off in the house. Make sure that water comes out of the hose spigot. Do this to ensure there is no ice behind the spigot. If water does not flow freely from the spigot, immediately shut off the water supply to the house.” The more you know, eh?
Snow sculpture is a piece of art by itself. And this brought it to the next level. I could have never imagined someone being able to create something like that. Imagination is the only limitation, and I guess that is true. Instead of a snowman, you build a snowman out of a car - hey, that’s genius.
I don’t know how I should react if I see a polar bear, scared probably? But the photographer seems to be pretty calm about it. Okay - you don’t really see this normally, even if you live in a cold country, unless you live in Alaska or something. So good news - next time when you go on vacation, you don’t have to worry about polar bears...unless you go to Alaska.
You must really hate your kids to do that - building a tall snowman, going all the way to the second floor...while you are at it, why not make a scary face out of it as well? I gotta say, this is some dedication, and whoever made this went all in with this prank. Note: This is something we do not condone, nor recommend that you do to people.
Remember to Put Those Wipers Up!
It is a common habit of car owners to put their wipers up in the winter - there are a few reasons behind it, such as not having them stuck to the windshield, and it also helps clean off the snow. However, one of the functions that have been overlooked is this - if you live in a country with heavy snow - your car can be buried underneath the snow overnight. And this, albeit unintentionally, can help you locate your car.
Another thing about winter in a cold country - once it gets cold enough, the water vapor condenses and becomes ice, which then adheres to the surface of things. Think of it as the ice molds you have in the freezer, but this time, it’s outdoor. And you can find something like this everywhere, from telephones to parking meters.
I don’t really know what language this is - but that doesn’t matter, the point in this picture is that they actually have different nutrient tables for summer and winter, on a box of yogurt. How could that be? As it turns out, cows were fed differently in summer and winter, which contributes to the different nutrients in the dairy products.
Here they are - some of the quirky photos from winter. How's winter in your hometown like? How cold does it normally get? Have you seen anything more bizarre than this? If you enjoyed reading this, why not share this with your friends and family?
