Mystery Solved

2012-12-23 14.08.49

The snow started this morning, and it’s been pretty steady all day. The first day of a snowfall is always the best — it looks wonderful as it falls, and everything is dressed so wonderfully in white. The day after, you’ve got a layer of ice on the sidewalks, gray slush in the streets, and don’t even get me started on that yellow snow…

Around our flat there are these large orange bins on various street corners, and we had wondered what they were for until today. The gentleman digging around in the picture is a shopowner on the street, and he’s getting sand to spread in front of his store. Well played, Budapest District XIII government! A good idea, simply and effectively executed!
