Moscow, Russia: Spring is Trying to Wake up!

This picture shows that we still have some snow and ice. But the green is trying to show!

Hello,Windows to Russia!

I was drinking my morning cup of coffee here in Moscow Russia. The weather has finally started to resemble Spring. It still is snowing everyday but you can feel that the weather is cold wet instead of bitter dry cold. The days are getting longer and I now have seen a few tulip bulbs and tree buds trying to grow. The snow melts as it hits the ground now and the big piles of snow are almost gone.

Big difference 2 weeks makes. But still it is April and I see snow falling everyday. In America as a child I was taught “March is kite flying time and the saying: In like a lion out like a lamb – In like a lamb out like a lion” and also the saying “April showers bring May flowers“. That does not really hold true here in Moscow, Russia.

A few days ago my wife and I walked the dog and I had to put my ear flaps down on my hat and my gloves had to be put on. Svet laughed and said, “Did you ever think that you would have to wear gloves in April?” (It was -4 degrees)

I growled, “No!” 🙂
