The Weather Will Change for the Worse


[03:14 pm] 30 January, 2007

The RA roads have been impassable so far because of
yesterday’s heavy snowfall. According to the data of
RA Ministry of Transportation and Communication, only
Berd-Tsambarak highway and Selimy mountain pass were
impassable by 9:00, whereas other roads of
intergovernmental and state importance were all open.

The streets of the capital are currently being cleaned
but the citizens don’t notice the work, the crossings
and backstreets a long way from the city centre are
still covered with thick layer of ice and snow.

Yesterday the municipality used 98 cars, 340-ton salt
and 500-cubic meter sand to clean the roads. Today
only 80-ton salt and 150-cubic meter sand are used.
«The roads are comparatively clean due to yesterday’s
work and now we are cleaning the backstreets», the
representative of the municipality told A1+.

«ArmHydromet» informed us that no snow will fall
today, but tomorrow it will snow heavily all over the
republic. The speed of the wind will surpass 20 – 25
meter second in Lori, Tavoush and Shirak, and the
temperature will drop about 3 – 5 degrees.

«Zvartnots» Airport informed us that the flights are
realised due to the schedule.

“I should like to see any power of the world destroy this race, this small tribe of unimportant people, whose wars have all been fought and lost, whose structures have crumbled, literature is unread, music is unheard, and prayers are no more answered. Go ahead, destroy Armenia . See if you can do it. Send them into the desert without bread or water. Burn their homes and churches. Then see if they will not laugh, sing and pray again. For when two of them meet anywhere in the world, see if they will not create a New Armenia.” - WS
