Today is October 11th, 2011, and it’s snowing in Yakutsk, the capital of Yakutia, Siberia / Russia. Instensively. It seems this falling snow won’t melt. Winter arrived. If you wondering, when winter comes to the world’s coldest city, here is the answer. It’s today this year.
Before we had several snowfalls. There were a few even in September. It was more like… rain, snow, rain, snow, bright sun, autumn, and suddently we are in winter again… and back to rain and autumn… Crazy! It was tough to determine, what a season we had outdoor. Well, actually, you know… It’s the usual fall to us. Autumn is always like that.
Though I should remind you that such a situation is relevant to my city. Yakutia is actually huge. 3 M sq km. For instance, in northern region winter has being dwelling for more than a month.

By the way, in the video it’s the view from my balcony. In the front you see the tributary of the Lena River. In summer, this place is used as the city’s beach. Praise god, winter is here, no more crowds are around 🙂
