Khimki, Russia is Frosty Cold
Khimki, Russia woke up to some foggy cold weather today. The thermometer pegged at -18C/0.4 F and I could really feel it. After about 2 hours of walking around trying to find the perfect picture that could demonstrate exactly how cold it is I realized the story was on my face, literally. I took pictures of trains, dogs, and construction workers to find the perfect picture to submit but none of them could come close to expressing my feeling towards how cold it felt to me as this one did. After only two hours of walking the ice build up in my beard and moustache was noticeable to everyone but me. At first, I didn’t understand why people were looking at me strangely but then I removed my glove to wipe my nose. Then it hit me why I got all the strange looks.
