Russian Snow

Just to show that it's not just us who is having some snow issues here in the UK, here are some photos of Olga's mum outside her apartment block taken recently by her neighbour.
Apparently the word on the street is that this year there isn't so much snow! However, it will stay until April, and the roads aren't gritted as everyone has winter tyres an drives sensibly...
Thanks to Sergei for taking the photos, and to Baba Luda for showing the true scale of those nice Christmas trees!
Luda's home town is on the eastern lower slopes of the Ural Mountains, a three-hour drive north of Yekaterinburg.
