Southern China covered in ice (3 photos + 2 videos)

12 February 2024

Just on the eve of the Chinese New Year, snow and rain fell in the south of the country, which instantly turned everything around into frozen sculptures.

The temperature was 5 degrees lower than usual. Bad weather raged for several days in Hubei, northern Hunan, northern Jiangxi, northern Zhejiang, and southern Anhui.

But local residents do not lose heart, they take videos as a souvenir. After all, it’s not every year that you get to see ice-covered trees and cars.

And they joke, calling their cities “huge stone sugar pumpkins.” All the green plants in the open air are covered with a layer of ice.

But if ice can be cleared from cars and roads, then what to do with power lines, which also have a hard time dealing with ice loads. Enterprising Chinese have come up with a way to clean wires. To do this you will need a quadcopter with an iron beam attached to it. It deftly knocks down ice, operating mainly in mountainous areas.

I wonder what will happen to him if he gets tangled in the wires?
