On January 23 and 24 we received a ton of snow. It was a record snowfall and many Russians say it had been over 15 years since they had seen so much snow. Jon was out and about driving on the 24th and he said it was just crazy out there. People were walking in the middle of the street because the sidewalks were covered in snow. He also said that all the bus stops were jam packed with people trying to get transportation. Recently Jon took some pictures outside and as you can see the temperatures here have not dropped below freezing so pretty much all the snow has remained. The last two days though the temps have been holding out at one degree over freezing and so the snow has begun to melt and it is a mess. Thankfully today it is snowing a bit and so it is covering up all the ugly.
