Even typically stoic Russians are growing weary of this winter’s relentless snowfall — the worst since the time fo the last tsar.
The Russian capital has received more snowfall so far this winter than it has in the past century.

The 7 feet of snow has snarled traffic and created backup on the roadways around the capital that could have stretched from Moscow to Madrid.

Some commuters who were stranded in early February took as long as 10 hours getting home.

Moscow’s snow woes follow some of Russia’s most frigid temperatures in 70 years during December.

The mercury dropped to as low as minus 58 degrees Fahrenheit in some parts of the country outside of typically frigid Siberia.
