Meteorite hits Russian Urals: Fireball explosion wreaks havoc, 400 injured (PHOTOS, VIDEO) — RT.
I’m a little late to the meteorite party, but this is simply amazing to behold. The video below is one I found reading an article on the Huffington Post, and it sure got my attention.
Warning: VERY LOUD BOOMS. Turn down your volume, unless you fancy accidents in the underpants.
Check out the RT article’s pictures and videos, and marvel.
Snowpocalypse Russia: ‘Snow tsunami’ swallows streets, cars, buildings (PHOTOS) — RT.
I stumbled on this article showcasing some of the massive snow depths Russia is dealing with right now. They’ve had a brutal winter so far, with temps as cold as -50 C (-58 F). One can assume that heavy snow paired with bitter cold temperatures is a foregone conclusion. Have a look at the articles, and be grateful if you’re happy to have yet another warm winter. Or be just plain jealous if you’re still waiting to happily freeze your buns off this winter.
I live in a warm climate, it never gets cold enough to snow here. It barely gets cold enough for frost, let alone freezes, more than a few times per winter. I live vicariously through pictures & articles like this. These locations are my climate heaven.
