Winter usually comes to Novosibirsk toward the end of October, and this year is no exception.

The first snow fell on October 24.

These photos look a lot like those I posted of the last snow just six months ago.

Before this snow had a chance to disappear (it hasn’t been warm enough for it to melt), more came.

A week later, the ground was fairly white.

And it just keeps coming. Happy winter!
