Snow falls relentlessly in these valleys. Visibility is reduced to zero at such times. Even though we haven't seen as heavy snowfall as last year, now we have the aftermath of an earthquake to contend with.
There are homes underneath those icy blocks and people do live inside them.
There is a fire inside but no ventilation. They don't have chimneys or windows. You have to lie down on the floor to avoid the smoke. You can't see anything, you can't breathe.
