"close, but no cigar" would only fit from the standpoint of the slab of concrete, though ;)

Sarcastically from driver would fit.
Or "better luck next time" if he's a fatalist.

Not sure where this best belongs, but a car bomb exploded in Nashville, TN this morning. Christmas morning in the U.S.
It was an RV which was broadcasting a loud recorded message to evacuate the area because of a bomb.
Sounds like a single targeted bombing that intended to cause chaos or structural damage without hurting anyone.
It is reported that there were 3 injuries.

It seems to do so every single year. Do your people ever learn? 🤷‍♂️

Its the same in Northern Germany. Just let one snowflake fall and 50% of the drivers are suddenly absolutely unskilled and make weird maneuvers in panic.

And temperatures below zero are unexpected weather conditions for the German railway system...

And here I am, complaining that the neighboring village in plain sight is full of snow, while here, 100m below, is nothing at all.

What counts as quite cold over there?

-2°C to +2°C I would say, from looking at the past temperatures...

The new year will start slightly freezing here, but FAR away from the -25°C I had in my youth....

Yes, anything below 0 degrees. Strange things happen to water and I keep falling over.

Random comment of the day:

The German national anthem sounds quite silly when translated morpheme-for-morpheme into English and sung to the tune of "Oh my darling Clementine".

"Oneyhood and right and freehood for the Theadish fatherland..."

This concludes the random comment for today.

That really hurts. Not patriotically, but acustically...

Watching the New Years day concert from Vienna. Looks odd with no audience, but 50 million tv viewers from 19 national broadcasters.
Eurovision still working then!

That explains it... my coding skills dropped into the bottom, when I became almost a teetotaler.

(Being drunk maybe makes you a better coder, but a much worse human for other things)
