    This photo was taken in late December. I together with my classmate went to dig right after the exam.
    I think this photo confirms that global warming is true.

    secret of the fact that the weather was cold, strong wind and I needed to warm up ... together with a shovel was better :-)

    I am surprised any digging is possible, I would imagine the ground is pretty frozen at this time of year.

    ground is not frozen... Until January 13 , here was very warm for winter ... about + 7 degrees Celsius (40 degrees Fahrenheit)...

    today, about - 10 degrees Celsius (14 degrees Fahrenheit)... there was a lot of snow, but it melted and already the ground has frozen crust...

    The weather conditions close to a historical conditions of that days. Frozen. That's a pity you doing such a big hole and found only brushes (to take). But it's typical. How many useless holes we made and most of them were empty - nothing to take, just scrap, like that ammo box.
    What is that on a 5 th photo with the blue strip?
