An avalanche of visitors descends on Harbin for the annual Ice and Snow Festival. And it's well worth braving the cold: the sculptures are often record-breaking in size and night illuminations of the ice add a surreal kaleidoscope of colour to northeastern China's bitter winters (minus 13C on a good day).

Temp today at Heilongjiang is -6. Only 6 degrees colder than my location, East Central Iowa.
