Slippery Rough Times for Russian Pedestrians at 30 Below Zero

When the ice and snow hit the proverbial fan in some northern regions, there's not much one can do other than to stay inside and avoid going out as humanly possible. Otherwise, you'll get scenes like the ones featured in this video.

Residents of Norilsk, an industrial city in Krasnoyarsk Krai, Russia, have to deal with frozen conditions on an everyday basis during the winter, with temperatures set to drop to as low as -40 Celsius or -40 Fahrenheit this week – on Monday, it was around -30 Celsius or -26 Fahrenheit.

Those who can afford to stay in, like this carefree couple who filmed a few minutes of pedestrian oopsies on the ice-cold and snow-ridden sidewalks and roads across their house, can actually have a laugh about it at the expense of their fellow citizens…
