Da pišem o 2m snijega, o životu na sjeveru, Muji u Kanada, nanosima i probijanju do najosnovnijeg za one koji ne mogu…. nema smisla. Snijeg pada, ima ga za izvoz, a sve ostalo će prekriti ružmarin i šaš. pic.twitter.com/py5RxMSeqi

- The classes were stopped in the areas of Busevic and Hasani - Kljajic said.
He said that the local roads are cleaned by citizens with tractors, but it is impossible to remove it all because of the amount of snow.

- Due to the enormous amounts of snow that fell earlier, it can't be cleaned well enough. The parts that are cleaned are to narrow for traffic - Kljajic said.
He said that they will ask for help from the municipality Novi Grad and the city of Prijedor, as well as from the administration of Civil Protection of Republika Srpska.
