You might wonder how we live in winter in Yakutsk, the capital of the Sakha (Yakutia) Republic, Russia’s Siberia. Take a look at street photographs taken today in my neighborhood around 2 pm.
As you see, it’s still the deep winter. Last days we have temperatures below minus 45 or 48 degrees Centigrade. Pretty cold!
Drivers tend to ride through thick fogs. People walk under snowy trees. Nice and freshy!
Though not so many pedestrians can be seen on sideways or backyards. Like any other human, We, Yakutians, like being in the warmth, so we prefer to spend more time indoor and less outdoor.
What’s the temperature inside houses. If the innner heating works fine, it should be around 22C. So, please, don’t worry much about us. Everything is fine!
How do they drive cars in such thick fogs? They can drive, not because they have the GPS navigator, they do it easily, as they know the city very well.
Do you like the cold weather? Why not join the ColdUnited community of people, who loves the cold.
