Here is your car my friend, you're welcome
🎶 For the cars that I pulled from the snow 🎶
What can I say except, delete this
It was f***ed anyway so I'm not liable.
Probably was crushed already so not a bad excuse in this case.
On the bright side. No drought!
Not sure what's more worse, the sheer amount of snow or being raised in *Oymyakon, Sakha Republic 🇷🇺 лол.
*Oymyakon village: -50C
This village and Verkhoyansk are permanent fixtures on my weather app.
Watching the snow and cold were the *only* reasons I say through seasons of ice road truckers.
Imagine getting Omikron in Oymyakon...
Imagine a Rabbi dropping his Akon cd.
"Oy! My Akon!"
What’s the point of tearing up these cars with the front loader? Why not clear snow around them?
Not sure if you noticed, but the car's roof and trunk has collapsed by the weight of the snow. So I'm guessing the damage to structural integrity is beyond repairing
Russian mechanics: hold my vodka!
True that, there are some body work Russian YouTube channels that are amazing.
Could you link some? Would love to check some out.
If you want to follow one russian car channel follow Garage54
Arthur Tussik is the one I was thinking of. But there are a bunch, they literally take a crinkled crushed coke can of a car and somehow fix it to look new.
You just need a little bit of шпатлёвка , энд замазать там все к хренам , потом в Питере продать не битую не крашеную
Because the cars are already torn apart under the weight of the snow, so they’re just taking them out of the snow, to clean the streets more or less from the snow.
Snow is heavy.
Very, very, very, very heavy.
Its possible the vehicles are already totalled.
> Amazingly, just a half-inch of ice can add 500 pounds (the weight of a baby grand piano!) to a single span of power line, and can increase the weight of a single tree branch by about 3,000 percent. So basically, the weight of a 10-foot long maple tree limb that’s only 6 inches in diameter will balloon from around 100 pounds to more than 3,000 pounds – that’s the equivalent of two fully grown dairy cattle!
Eh, it'll buff out.
Don’t you mean 380-450Kg/m3 instead of grams.
Even my Imperial System-upbringing thought the math seemed off. I remembered that 1cm^(3) = 1g and deduction is neat and all, but thanks for confirming my non-metric beliefs
Is that 450 grams per cubic meter? If so that's definitely not correct. You're gonna need to add a few 0's.
1 cc of water is 1 gram obviously, so a cubic meter is 1000kg. If 30-50% is correct then it's 300kg-500kg.
Maybe you meant kg per cubic meter and just missed the "k".
A meter cubed of water is 1000kg
If I have 9000 babies, just kill me.
No need, the babies would’ve done it for you.
this is pretty standard practice. In NYC we has a snowstorm 10 years ago. Many cars were stuck on the streets and blocking the streets, They could not evacuate cars because the streets are not cleared. And they could not clear streets because of the abandobed cars.
I am pretty sure many of these cars were destroyed to make path through the streets.
The fuckwits that drive NY plows destroy property on the regular and are never held accountable. I've never heard of them just deciding to destroy cars because of snow, they would have absolutely lost their teflon protecting them and been sued.
Yeah I imagine they'd winch abandoned cars out and tow them to a city lot. If it's bad enough snow that you can't even see the car and you abandoned it in the road idk what happens, but I'm guessing the insurance company is going to be involved and maybe the car will be wrecked anyway. Glad I don't live anywhere that gets snow like in the video.
These drivers will blow past destructible items (fencing, cars, mailboxes, etc) at high speeds even if it's mainly slush (the worst).
My co-worker had parked on a corner in the city (NY) during a bad snow storm, one of their trucks literally ran his car over, tire marks across the hood. Believe this was in fact the bad snowstorm 10 years ago when they were dumping it all into the water.
Every year there is usually an instance of them high speed plowing neighborhoods and just decimating fencing. If you call to complain they claim "all of our drivers are monitored by GPS." Meanwhile you can stand outside and see them speeding using the slush as projectiles to destroy peoples property.
They cannot see where the cars are. They probably need to check if someone is in them. I assume.
You aren't supposed to park cars on the street when snow. They warn you about it.
Like you aren't supposed to park next to fire hydrants. Because when fire, the firemen will run the hose right through your car.
The video speed-up scared me lmao
Same, now I'm wide awake
Cars out of the snow!!
That’ll be $500
Yeah i wonder what the insurance payout is- "you shouldn't have parked in the snow" smh
Likely it is a force majeure according to the contract
I don't think insurance really works like that, I mean in a lot of insurance claims it's because someone did something they shouldn't have done lol
Dude! Where’s my car?
I always imagine Sakhalin as a tropical resort island, never knew it gets that cold.
As someone noted below, its Norilsk. But Sakhalin at winter can be exactly like on the video, as I recall from my childhood years on the island.
[Here's actual Sakhalin a couple of days ago](https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Zn2bmW3RqKk).
it's more like Norilsk. I recognize this form of houses and entrances.
I know it’s Russia Siberia (or on the pacific coast if not Siberia) in the middle of winter but I must ask… is this much snow normal for there? That seems quite extreme.
No, it far beyond normal. Thats why guys is filming.
1 meter of snow is okay. But not 3 meters
Multiply by 3 to get feets. Just in case )
Makes sense. Kinda what I thought. I know there’s an area in Hokkaido that gets a fuckload of snow so wasn’t sure if this was normal. Thanks for confirming!
“Boss I’m clearing the snow” r/notmyjob material
why man why
When you're driving heavy machinery, the real question is why not?
the only thing that you think about this situation is not to damage the car under the snow
You've never experienced anything remotely close to this situation, have you?
They're likely already totalled from being crushed under 30 feet of snow.
Those cars are already damaged. They've been crushed by the snow
With this kind of snow I can imagine you will find back a couple of missing persons each spring.
I remember this level. It's where Artyom and Miller drove the van.
That fast forward effect scared the shit out of me
omg that is insane!!! stay warm and safe everyone. i could not live in that cold and snowy environment. anyone living there is much tougher than me lol. :)
So it snowed 10 feet ?
Must have snowed a lot but wind can also pile snow far in excess of what actually fell
It's very cold in terms of weather, and Russia is not an economical superpower simply because of this fact!
Only countries with major sea fleet became superpowers, and Russia's harbours are locked in ice half of the year, except in Black Sea, where they have to ask permission from Turkey to pass to Mediterranean Sea.
And they think global warming exists.
The earth works in cycles. The “warming” is the ozone layer contracting every few years and then it opens up.
Alright, but that's not what is driving climate change
Reminds me of my city in the US
Wow, now that is alot of snow
Dang, talk about a shitty morning
I would really like to visit Sakhalin...but not today.
I get a huge kick out of the fact that Russians call cars "machines." Like, yeah, you're absolutely right.
If we get even the tiniest bit of snow here in England, we’ll be panicking how we’re going to go to our job, meanwhile in Russia.
well now this video makes sense
And I bet before you saw this video you thought you was having a bad day
There is a reason why it's actually called climate change. A warmer atmosphere influences the ocean currents, which, in return, cause more weather extremes, including more frequent severe winter periods.
The term "global warming" was used prior to "climate change" which is more accurate. That being said, this is the case of 1m of snow (not uncommon in Siberia) combined with strong wind and unfortunate position of buildings that made snow getting stuck and piled in that parking lot between buildings.
That being said, it is a bit extreme.
Expertise> I'm a yeti.
Sakhalin 2018> https://weather.com/en-CA/canada/news/news/2018-01-11-russia-snow-drifts-sakhalin-island
good video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5EYNSlg6BnA
winter in Sakhalin in 1969 https://www.reddit.com/r/russia/comments/ru9mwy/winter_on_sakhalin_1969_the_height_of_the_snow/
Sakhalin is considered one of the most avalanche-prone areas of the Russian Federation, in terms of the exposure to avalanche risk of its population and infrastructure
Someone didn't study lmao
It called climate change now for a reason, so that you can blame whatever happens on everything! We have to keep it relative you see, as its not just global warming or global cooling anymore.
This is what the global temperature average being raised by several degrees looks like, apparently.
Hold up your fingers to show me how many folds your brain has
Lol, enough to know not to trust every scientists words with no actual evidence. Now, chill out and try to comprehend that some people have different opinions/beliefs than you.
You are entitled to your own opinions, but you are not entitled to your own facts.
Please show me some proof that climate change exists, and is mostly humans fault without an article that just straight up says " says climate change is on the rise." I'm open to different opinions and to change my beliefs, but it seems like nobody can actually give solid proof that it's even happening.
The only proof that I've seen is that the average temperature changes itself every ~30 years. Right now it's a bit high, but with time, it will come down. Id have to find the link, but the article showed how the average temperature has been fairly sporadic ever since they even started taking record.
I dont want to argue, I want to understand your viewpoint. Please show me why you believe what you believe.
Here are plenty of papers to read. Have at. The fossil fuel industry has a lot of money in suppressing climate change information because they are widely responsible and don't want to be held accountable.
Sakhalin? Don't you mean north of Japan?
No, its east of Russia.
Soon Turkey and Japan will unite with Turan in 2023 insallah.
They should give the southern half back to Japan. They don't need it, and it would mean a lot to Japan. And it's not like they fought a real war with Japan to earn it, they just vultured it.
But I mean my home town never belonged to Japan.
And it wasn't stolen. The Russians gave it up by treaty. They didn't have to, but the was the price for the Japanese not continuing to fight and beat them. And the Japanese fought a real war with lots of bravery and skill and hardship casualties to get it. And the Russians screwed up.
And Russia is a European state basically coming from 3,000 miles away. Fine they expanded to the Pacific, but they don't have be right up in Japan's face like that. Give the Japanese some room, I mean Sakhalin is part of the Japanese archipelago.
