Ramnasjön, Borås

 

One side of the lake is being kept free of ice so that work can continue on connecting two district heating schemes by pipes sunk in the bottom of the lake. Clearly, they aren't going to let winter prevent them from finishing on time :-)

I suppose folks who live in climates like this do not let a little white stuff hamper their lives, Tom.

[It is a bit like my situation...Around 38degC most days, which many folks would regard as too damn hot for a 2 hour intense bicycle ride, but it doesn't put me off at all.]
Tom Wilson: Acclimatisation, eh? smile

it looks incredibly cold
Tom Wilson: Not too bad, only about -5C - one night it got down to -15C.
A winters' day... Very nice! smile
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Elizabeth.

What a wonderful image Tom, Sweden and green technology triumphs
Tom Wilson: They are doing their best, Chris - mostly through funding local government properly!

We don't seem to have the same attitude here when it snows, Tom
Tom Wilson: We got to the stage of forgetting what winter can be like, Lisl - got rid of all the necessary equipment and so can't cope!
They are used to this sort of weather and don't let it interfere with things too much
Tom Wilson: Exactly, Bill.
Oh the public services had that sort of attitude here.
Tom Wilson: Indeed!
Love this blue and white scene.
Tom Wilson: Thanks, Mary.
great composition Tom... we have fishing huts on the ice... i have never seen one on a jetty before....petersmile
Tom Wilson: This was something to do with the installation of the pipes - and it was running something that created turbulence to prevent that area of the lake from freezing.

It looks cold, but then I read it was not that cold at all. Love all the colours blue here.
I googled the place.... wow in Sweden, they know what they are doing smile
Tom Wilson: Only about -5C that day, Astrid. And, yes, they do know what they are about in the energy area!

The part of your blurb that I like most is that they are sinking pipes for heating systems in a lake that is normally frozen. Something interesting will be happening when everything turns to "normal" I guess.
Tom Wilson: Well, it's not normally frozen, Louis - only for a few weeks in the winter.
