The person who runs the school I’m going to is a very thorough Dutchman, so he produced a set of notes to tell us all the local information, including what could go wrong.
One piece of advice was that each year someone is killed by falling icicles. Today I went out to have lunch and do some shopping, and a young woman came up and told me to keep away from the footpath near a building. She had put some barricades on the footpath.
It turned out that there were icicles on the edge of the roof, about 10 stories up, and a man was on the roof sweeping the snow and icicles off the roof. If you look closely at this photo, you can see some snow and ice coming down the side of the building.
