17 photos that show the beauty and harshness of winter

In some parts of the earth, living during the winter poses a real challenge. The cold is overwhelming and just going outside can be torture. We admit that a blanket of snow can be beautiful, as long as it doesn’t paralyze the whole country and its economy.

During the winter, you have to admit that it’s better to observe the weather outside from the warmth of your home, under a blanket with a cup of hot cocoa. That’s the only way some of us could survive the extreme conditions that shown in the photos below.
