Copenhagen Snow Boots
We had our first modest snowfall last night. We woke up to a lovely cityscape of dusty whiteness.
The girl pictured is wearing standard, elegant "snow boots". A little adverse weather doesn't have to stop anyone from being stylish.
The weather in Copenhagen is similar to Vancouver in Canada or even Seattle. We get a bit more snowfall - a couple of big dumps each winter - but there is nothing that stops the bike traffic.
When you have a dedicated bike lane infrastruture, you need - bien sur - dedicated bike lane street cleaning machines.
When it really snows here, they race along the bike lanes - alongside the snowploughs on the streets - and make the bike lanes ready for the next wave of bikes.
