Watch this awe-inspiring video of a MASSIVE avalanche in Russia. With some snow now finally falling in Europe, it’s a timely reminder of the enormous power of Mother Nature.
Sure, this was triggered by some good old fashioned Russian military hardware, but holy crap that is one frickin’ monster of an avvie. We must confess, when we clicked play we were initially laughing at the thought of vodak-soaked Russians gathering around a massive cannon for afterski, but when the shell detonates and the avalanche starts fully rolling we were seriously worried this might turn into some Faces of Death-style horror clip. It just gets bigger and bigger and you really fear for the safety of the chuckling Russians…
Be aware out there. The mountains are more powerful than you can possibly imagine.
