Dear MEL Topic Readers,

How to survive in Moscow without sunshine

Winter in Moscow. Doesn’t sound so attractive for tourists. Though it is usually dark and covered with snow, Muscovites, residents of Moscow, are used to the long winter even with just an hour of sunshine a day. They enjoy walking in the snow, sliding along on sleds and making snowmen, or drinking vodka inside.

However, the last December was miserable at best, even for patient Muscovites. Having had the least sunshine on record, only six minutes in the entire month, it was the darkest month on record. To make the conditions even worse, it was warmer than usual by nearly six degrees Celsius. It means snow, their favorite winter companion, melted so quickly that streets and parks were mostly covered with mud and dust instead of white carpet. It was too depressing even for Russians who are very good at waiting for things to pass.

How did they manage to survive under such gloomy, grey sky?

Enjoy reading and thinking how you would deal with a month without sunshine.
