      Wow,

      if I didn't now any better I would say this is was in northern Canada, Alaska or even in a place like the Rockies or the Appalachian Mountains.

      I'll look into it a little more.

      Tower climbing is one of the most dangerous jobs to have under good conditions, but this is insane! He's climbing on the safety ring that is designed to keep you on the ladder, which is under a foot of ice. Gotta be a 'minor' safety violation

      The photo shows how strong these towers are though.

      That is one amazing picture, it must be somewhere that gets constant snow & cold to be that frozen.
      And yes it does show how strong the towers can be, and how crazy the worker is. :lmao:

      Wow!!

      Now that is a lot of snow. :eek:

      I know, no doubt you used to get a lot more in IL than in FL. No wonder why almost all of the X-Mas movies are set in places like Evanston, IL (Home Alone or Uncle Buck).
    • Gamer03
      Yep. No snow in Florida. If it snowed in Florida, I think the world would be in trouble. :eek:

      Speaking of Home Alone, I was watching that yesterday afternoon on TBS.

      I remember one year it snowed when we were visiting my grandparents in Florida in the early 80's. An hour later it was all gone, but it did snow.

      Oh man that is insane
    • ShoresGuy
      Yup, it was on VOX as well :D. I like the scenes where Kevin puts Marv and Harry through some pain when they try to break into his house.
    • Gamer03
      Wow!

      The only time I saw a flake...at least I think it was a flake of snow, was in December of 1995 (I was outside on our lanai by our pool). It was about 34 or 35 outside in the morning and it hit my hand and then disappeared immediately. Now I don't know if it was snow, but it sure looked like it (it was a real cloudy day outside).
    • Gamer03
      Yep. Those are the best. Isn't that like half the movie...lol. :D

      Wow this is insane! I've actually seen towers like this in the Alps in Europe- they were not as tall, but also completely covered by snow and ice.
