This morning, Daegu had the heaviest snow fall this winter! The entire city is covered with snow! Snow view is spectacular but it is hard to commute and move around in the presence of snow on streets and roads. Daegu City Hall and citizens has been clearing away snows across the city. Thank you so much for everyone who’s been so kind and responsible to remove snow from the streets!
