Heavy shower flooded Riga today; the storm torn branches off the trees, so many streets, roads became blocked. Thankfully it was very short rain, hence the traffic was limited just for some hours. The picture was taken this Sunday afternoon on the exit from Riga Airport.
NASA satellite photo of winter in Latvia and neighbour countries Estonia, Russia, Belarus, Lithuania, Sweden. A short ice free strip in the gulf of Riga is made in order to make possible ferry traffic. Psst, Riga is in the very center :)
I have never thought that removing icicles and cleaning roofs from the snow is so important procedure. This year my flat on the last floor get flooded because of the rapidly melted ice and snow. And the insurance company says it's not their case . P.S. Check the angry guy on the most-left photo ;)
It is another nice photo taken from Swedbank office during Riga Smog in the end of January. On the photo it is clearly visible that smog was at level of 50 meters, basically the middle of Shroud Bridge
6 months passed since I posted the photo of the most interesting on-going building in Latvia. See the all time line of the LNB Building. Due all-winter-long abundant snowfalls, the snowdrifts are more than 1 meter high almost everywhere in Riga
