As cold fronts sweep across various parts of Asia, an abundance of snow and low temperatures have become a problem for many.
Some Japanese social media users, however, have made the best of the situation by building their own outdoor “beer coolers” so that one doesn’t have to get up from the couch to get an ice-cold beer.
As most apartments and houses in Japan don’t have central heating, going from the well-heated living room to a cold and dreary kitchen may be a tortuous journey for most.
According to local Japanese-language media, a Twitter user explained that whenever it snows, “those who have the most fun, win”; therefore, they decided to use the snow to their advantage and built an outdoor refrigerator, right outside their window.
The post was met with enthusiastic responses as some commented that they have never been a fan of snow, but are “kind of jealous” after seeing the ingenious idea.
One wrote that the picture has inspired them to turn “life’s negatives into positives”, while another excitedly responded: “So that’s what snow’s for!”
Many also followed suit and posted their own versions of the outdoor cooler with slight variations, though the frozen drinks featured were mostly alcoholic beverages.
Some social media users were worried that the outdoor fridge would freeze the liquid inside the cans, but others pointed out that with drinks containing alcohol, the freezing point would likely be a bit lower.
