My grammar teacher said that St. Petersburg hasn't had a real winter for awhile. I suppose she is right. It has been pretty mild for the past few years.

And this year....will winter return?


  1. 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.

  2. 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.

  3. 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!


  4. Hi Jessica,

    Thanks for stopping by! :) Blessings to you in Ukraine!

  5. do you need someone to bring you warm clothes?

  6. Actually, I need some of my summer clothes that I left behind! I mean, I will need them. Mom?
