    Mother natures freight train!

    Take a look at this slow avalanche, and you'll understand why you don't mess with them...

    Awesome/fearsome/Terrifying!!!how can something as pretty n gentle as a "SnowFlake"turn into something so powerful n distructive?Those houses were lucky.
    Don't they try to minimise them by using a Cannon,to get them moving before they get too big????

    Yowzer. It was like a river of snow.

    I heard "Baum" (Tree) "Haus" (House) and "Schau" (look?). Sounds like an interesting language.

    It was Austrian I think. This took place last week in the Italian alps near Austria.

    Love the way that man made roads made it easier for it to progress. Pretty awesome sight though.
