"What do you tell your nine year old?"

With the gas gone, it looks like everyone in Bulgaria went out and bought an electric space heater. The problem: there's now an electricity shortage.

So, how do you explain the gas crisis to a nine year old?

"Oh she get's it," says one Bulgarian mom.

Apparently, Bulgarian nine year olds understand more about international relations than CNN.

Update: it seems that the 1,300 animals in the Bulgarian national zoo have been hardest hit. "About a third of the animals are vulnerable to cold," said the zoo's director Ivan Ivanov said. "Only the Siberian tigers feel comfortable in these temperatures."
