So the Real Winter have finally come!
Cyclone "Jenna" are raging over Europe and come to Russia's North-West. We have - 18 C and heavy snowfall now.
Here are the part of the Pulkovo Domestic Airport runways, being cleaned busily by a lot of special cars.
St-Petersbur airports, unlike many in EU, for example, are not closed yet - maybe Russians are less afraid of the cold and snow?

I like this shot very much, and sympathize with you for the cold. The River Neva must be frozen solid by now. Residents of of genuinely cold climates are so much better able to cope psychologically and physically with severe storm. In the United States, states such as northern states such as Minnesota, Illinois, New York... can generally clear off several meters of snow (one mountainous area in the North West had 5.2 meters in 24 hours). But here in Virginia, when we get 50 cm, the roads become paralyzed. Were you standing outside, or is this a shot from inside the terminal?
I wish you Season's Greetings and a New Year, marked by health, happiness and prosperity.

да-да, хапнул я приключений тоже. чемодан мой потеряли, привезли через 2 дня, когда уже все нужное купил. Блин!
А в Москве так деревья и стоят после фрииз рэйн, как в сказке ледяной.
Впечатлений - море, потом напишу!
С Новым годом!
