hate to break it to you, but two years ago, the last snow fall of the season wasn't until 2nd of june...it didn't accumulate much if at all, but it was snow...

The best way to avoid snow is to invite a friend, stay at home, lay on the sofa, light candles and watch a nice movie.
We all are tired of winter, but when you do not have time to think about it - it helps!

All the Russians around here are calling for 2 more weeks of snow and then spring. It's not my country, so I will trust their instincts.

The snow will stop exactly six weeks after you have changed your winter tyres for summer ones.

My God -I remember that! I was walking home in the evening and my jacket thermometer read just below freezing! White flakes began to fall and it wasn't the usual οσυ either. I thought it was quite rude for June. Even in Alaska, I hadn't seen June snow (late May, yes)!!!!

indeed...it was rude...i thought i'd imagined it until colleagues at work said that they had also been hallucinating that morning...:(

oddly enough, i spent a summer working at Denali National Park in Alaska in '90. it snowed in JULY when i was there...!!! not in the valley where i lived, granted. but once the clouds cleared from the mountains that surrounded our little hamlet just outside the park, all of the peaks (which were relatively small) were covered in snow!!! and when i left in late august, it had already snowed in the valley...ugh...wasn't ready for that at all!!!

I took my parents to visit Denali in July of 97. It pi*sed rain in the valley for a couple days, but we had white stuff at elevation. I just didn't count that incident since I was thinking more of having seen/not seen snow in town. Technically, you can see snow 12 mos a yr, but we try not to think about it:) My memories of up north are more like-
Breakup-first week of May
Followed by the appearance of brown "grass"
Just as the buds were opening into leaves by the 3rd week of May,I'd leave only to return about the first of September to nothing but yellow birch that shed their leaves by the 3rd week of September. Now that's rude! Be forewarned though, though I have not seen snow (yet) in Moscow in August, I've seen frost in late Aug.

The change of seasons is marked only by the rise and fall of beer tents and resturant patios

sounds about right...i arrived mid-May and there were huge banks of snow on the highway from anchorage up to denali...and everything was turning when i left the end of august. have to say one of the most amazing things i've ever experience was the northern lights a few weeks before i left...unbelieveable!!!

Even me, Monkey the Optimist, thinks there ain't no spring!

It's going to be one long and FF winter forever.

Let good old Russian spleen be awakened!!!

This slop is not the snow I am used to, my feet are developing something akin to jungle rot from incessant wet!

it's quite amusing to walk up Tverskaya as the majority of the shops have their spring/summer collections in, meaning scantilly-clad maniquins (sp?) in the window.... and everyone else just has a look of disgust on their faces!

Dear All,
I appologize for the snow. It is all my fault. I decided to wear non valenki boots with heels today AND a gauzy springy top. I have brought this plague upon us all via prespring wardrobe selections. I promise from this day forward to wear my pukhovka, valenki, 2 pairs of longjohns, skimask, ear muffs, 3 sweaters, and ...

oh and my prediction for when this crap will end??? the 12th of NEVER.

Shara the groundhog.... have you been out today?

35.29% of you voted that the snow will stop this week and it hasn't. I'm beginning to think that it will never end!

when did the snow start though? Nov/dec last year?
