This iReport is part of an assignment:
Europe's deadly cold blast
Dachshing through the snow
On February 4th, state of emergency was declared nation wide. Hundred of villages are cut off and relief is being brought by helicopters. One person froze to death.
In Sarajevo, however, the atmosphere is carnival-like - some people ski, snowboard and drive snowmobiles in downtown Sarajevo. Citizens who got engaged in shoveling yesterday, got a break over a barbecue. Free tea is being offered in the streets for the passers by and even free daycare is available as schools and kindergartens will be closed until Friday, February 10.
