10 photos of Russia in winter

with No Comments

Okay, so it’s not actually spring yet- twelve days to go until Russia acknowledges the first day of spring (March 1st)- but the earliest signs of spring have already appeared.

  • It’s warm and sunny!
  • Pieces of sidewalk have emerged. People are finally starting to chip away at the layer of snow that we’ve been walking over for months.
  • Workers have been stomping around this morning, pushing snow off our building’s roof in small avalanches. The sidewalk is roped off below so no one gets hit by the snow.

This weekend I’m doing some early spring cleaning on my computer, digging into a big folder of winter photos…

How to keep a windshield free of snow and frost.
How the roads stay (more or less) clear.
How icicles and snow are removed from smaller buildings in Moscow.
Moscow welcomes 2019.
Chelyabinsk in winter.
Glamorous 38-cent marshrutka rides of December.
The tank outside McDonalds.
City tram. Quite slow but goes all over the city + cheapest way to get around (30 cents).
View of Chelyabinsk from the 11th floor.

Have a great weekend! 🙂
