Switzerland Buried Under Drift Ice

Drift ice in Switzerland? You better believe it!

As is generally known, the most uncomfortable places on earth are the perpetual ice landscapes of the Arctic North Pole and the Antarctic South Pole. This now has extended to the otherwise pretty cozy country of Switzerland. Look at this pack ice in Staad, at the Lake of Constance:


Now enjoy these spectacular impressions!

Ice snowstorm. Cars and lake.

Do you really have to be the ice queen intellectual or the slut whore? Isn’t there some way to be both?

(Susan Sarandon)

Ice and snow. Cars and trees.
Look at the icey trees!

I believe Ronald Reagan can make this country what it once was… a large Arctic region covered with ice.

(Robin Williams)


Ice on ship... Eis auf dem schiff...
Ice on drowning ships…

Age does not diminish the extreme disappointment of having a scoop of ice cream fall from the cone.

At 6 years old, the ice became a place for me to express myself. Because I was so shy off the ice, it became my safe haven, with music and freedom and self-expression. That was my emotional outlet.

(Kristi Yamaguchi)

Pillar in ice

How many women have the courage to start properly with a cold, cold bath early in the morning?
I jump in, throw the water, cold as ice, and after the first plunge I am happy.

(Helene Anna Held)

Amazing ice art on pillar.

Take ice. Ice is fascinating to me. Ice is the one thing in our world that went from an agricultural product to being manufactured.

(Alton Brown)

Ducks on ice...

I usually get myself into situations that cause sparks. I mean I’m a girl that likes the storms. I love feeling alive, I love walking out in the cold in my bare feet and feeling the ice on my toes.

Now is everything soon going to disappear under a unconquerable layer of ice soon in Switzerland? Probably!
But on the other hand there is hope as well, as the following photos demonstrate:

It’ll work, if god, wind, leads, ice, snow, and all the hells of this damned frozen land are willing.

And finally, we leave you with this quote by Italian poet, prose writer, editor and translator Eugenio Montale:

Happiness, for you we walk on a knife edge. To the eyes you are a flickering light, to the feet, thin ice that cracks; and so may no one touch you who loves you.

(Eugenio Montale)
