Days are much longer now, so it's still daylight at 9:00pm, but no serious green growth to be seen. Instead, we keep getting snow storms that melt away quickly. The Russians joke about their weather.
"We have three months of cold weather, and nine months of really cold weather."
Alexsey: How was your summer?
Vladimir: It was OK, but I had to work that day.
(Elder Mac as we arrived at the Office last week. He spent the winter helping keep the walkways cleared. It's common to let the ice build up on walks and scrape it away at the end of hard winter.)
