Great pics, both of you. I love that one of yours, Thijs, with the very disconsolate looking dog ploughing its way along.
And crumbs, Paul, you've got it bad your way. Nothing like that here. I mean the side roads are dicey and there's plenty of snow, but not that depth. That third one is really beautiful, shows how steep it is near you. Yet to see the other views you would have no idea.

i had fun this week,but it gets his trouble too.
germany don't trow salt on the roads like we do in holland.
had to unload in germany,having troubles to gooing backwarts up to the docks from of the street.
with the tractor between 2 cars the rear axle was spinning like hell,to melting the ice.
was coming a woman out of the office writhing the licenceplate and phonenr. of the company,meanwhile complaning that i wassn't trowing salt or even that i havn't salt with me and that i was driving with old tyre's.
she was probaly a tyre expert,there was 10 mm of profile on it.
you stupid woman.
finaly i reach the dock,but it take me about 30 min. for 20 meters backwarts
Throwing salt on the roads is in the responsability of the local communities. They all have to save money and so they don't like to use their salt. As we all know, we have climate warming and so we don't have to expect snow anymore. Private people are not allowed to use salt because of environtmental protection. We only may use salt on our footpaths, if there is ice-rain.
The behaviour of German companies against truck drivers or transport companies is getting quite shameless. Of course they are responsible for their yard! By law you are enabled to refuse the unloading. You could break your neck on an icy yard! But if you will claim about that woman, they will even ban you from their property, call your company and insist on a new driver! There are too many transport companies right now and it is easy to find alternatives.
I have to apologize for all these ass-holes in my country.
In my job it is very important that you and your colleages will deliver our products safely and in time to the customer. And to 99% this works perfect despite of week-ends, holidays or weather conditions. So you have my greatest respect, Sir and i feel honored to call some of your colleagues my friends.
