From Russia with love?

What a very strange month it is … for we have had days that have required even the most cold blooded of us to parade in blouses and t-shirts. Now we are being blasted with cannons of cold air, attacking with military precision, straight over the sea from Russia. The temperatures have plummeted so much that it has been colder than any other November day on record. Not content with teasing us with icy fingers the Russian winds have brought buckets of snow. So much snow that some places are snow bound with no electric, milk, bread and very little fresh vegetables. The weather experts advise that it will continue for some time but cannot make up their minds how long … It is December tomorrow, but we have our Winter today!

Earlier I looked out with the notion of taking a picture of the scene but all was grey and depressingly gloomy. The cold appeared to give an air of sludgy mist which made everywhere appear menacing …

That sounds like some awful weather you're having. I hope where you are that you aren't getting the worst of it. I know that it won't be long before the icy blast hits us, I just hope it takes it's good old time getting here

I really feel sorry for you. We get the cold Canadian air here. But it sounds like you have way more cold and snow problems than we have. Hope it is not too bad for you.

The weather in Chicago has been weird. We had almost record breaking warm weather to drop into snowy cold in a matter of hours. Brrrrrrrrrrrr!

The weather in London has been a bit on the cold side recently, but nothing compared to Siberia where this cold weather originated, it hits -50 and lower, that it is real cold!

We are freezing cold now. My heater is going full blast. We have some strong northern winds blowing straight down across the plains from Canada....Brrrrr!

I hope you all get a break soon!
