Novosibirsk is in the throes of a typical March snowstorm. It’s really coming down. For days now the ice has been covered with a new layer of snow–very treacherous for walking and driving.

None of this will last long, with the high temperatures hovering a few degrees below freezing. In the meantime, we’ll be enjoying winter in spring.

This will probably repeat itself a few more times. It’s what will make the spring thaw that much more interesting.
