  1. About the snow cover in Moscow.
    During the last days of October, autumn landscape changed in the metropolitan area of winter, snow everywhere formed in Moscow up to 7 cm in the region 13cm. The snow does not melt because the air temperature during the day is held negative, below the norm for 3-5 degrees.
    And there’s snow! During the day, 03 October snow depth in the Moscow region could increase by 5-10 cm. And the next Atlantic hurricane will have even more snow.
    If this happens, then this year the date of the establishment of permanent snow cover (October 27) will be the first in the history of instrumental observations in the capital!

    First snow on the German lowlands?
    The first snow may fall on the flat in Germany, in particular, since 7 November.

  2. I am sad for the horses, but at least theyre taking action quickly so they dont starve or die a horrible death by freezing;-(
    and notably they DID immediately act for the animals and it wont just be the horses. bit a change from places elsewhere isnt it?
