Alec Luhn, an American journalist in Russia shared a photo of noodles and an egg to show how cold it is in winter in some parts of the country.
Taken from Novosibirsk, a city in the southwestern part of Siberia, the picture shows noodles and a cracked egg that looks suspended in the air after temperatures plummeted to 40 degrees in the region a few days ago.
Shortly, people all over the country started sending vicious and beautiful pictures too. From the wintry forests to guys enjoying the ice cream in shorts, here are some of them that have caught Viraltrendzs attention!
Yulia Shipitsina, a Novosibirsk woman, admitted that the New Year’s weather did not bless the region with warmth. However, she said that the local people are familiar with it and are not afraid of it. “When it’s cold, it’s best to dress like cabbage so that there are several layers of clothing. It will help keep you warm. But sometimes [you don’t need anything] – if you go to a Russian sauna, the best option is a nearby snowdrift. “
SUP Novosibirsk, a company that organizes the stand-up paddleboard tour in the area, also shared a photo in the cold. In it, Santa can be seen paddling in the river. “Our winters are very cold, and in the last few days the temperature has dropped to -42 ° C, which is very unusual here,” a company spokesman said. “In such cases, it’s even dangerous to inhale the air through your lungs; you need to use special waterproof suits and warm EVA boots. Of course, it’s still very cold, but after 5 minutes of active rowing, it’s hot. “
Most of Russia has a continental climate, with long cold winters and short summers. However, since the country is so large, there is a wide range of summer and winter temperatures. The January temperature is about 6°C (45 °F ) on the southeast coast of the Black Sea, but north may be in danger. For example, in 1974, record low temperatures of -71 ° C (-96 ° F) were recorded in the northeastern Siberian village of Oymyakon, the lowest temperature in an occupied region ever. In many parts of Siberia, the soil does never defrost more than a foot.
“Finally, my favorite snow came to Siberia. Just after the heavy snow. This is my favorite winter, though you can’t go long. The city is empty, even though the New Year is still in its infancy. Probably because not every car will start this cold.
For these two days, a thick cloud of icy gloom appeared over the city. The temperature dropped to -42 degrees. Look what it’s like from above. “
