It's been cold all around the world lately, and in Harbin, the capital of Heilongjiang province in northeastern China, it gets really cold in the winter anyway; the city is known for having the roughest weather and longest winter among major Chinese cities.
So if you happen to leave your wet garments outside on ice-cold concrete they WILL freeze, and the wind will finish the job.
