The journal of an American expat in Russia
Have to say - it is very beautiful. I think last year St. Petersburg's winter was in Lansing, Michigan. Long. Cold. Lots and lots and lots of snow. I thought that would bode well for a summery summer, but instead I was putting on a sweater in July and August (and twice put on the car heater!) Difficult for us to believe in global warming where we are.
We don't tend to get a lot of snow accumulation in St. Petersburg. Just a few inches that freeze, and stay frozen, when it's cold enough. I have been wearing 3-4 layers of clothing and wondering what I'm going to wear if it gets colder!I agree, winter has a certain beauty to it.
Hi Elizabeth,I saw your post on boundless and wanted to stop by and say hi. I am currently living in Kiev, Ukraine, as a volunteer teacher at a school for MK's. We have had flurries here, just a few weeks ago, but haven't had a major snowfall yet.I hope all is well with you, and I look forward to reading more of your posts!Jessica
Hi Jessica,Thanks for stopping by! :) Blessings to you in Ukraine!
do you need someone to bring you warm clothes?
Actually, I need some of my summer clothes that I left behind! I mean, I will need them. Mom?
