Macedonia: Icy Grip on the Center of Skopje

While the carriageways of the main boulevards in the center of Skopje are clear, the pavements and the side streets in the municipality of Centar remain icy. Some are covered by layers of ice or re-frozen slush, by old frozen snow, or an unevenly hardened mash of snow and "salt."
Fokus daily claimed that the authorities avoid declaring nationwide state of emergency in order to "prove" that they were prepared for the snow.
