It’s not winter, but it’s “winter”. Yes, there’s been warming in Russia, too, but it’s still COLD there in most parts. It still snows early and hard, and the thaw still comes late and slow. The more things change…

You’ve heard of the famous Russian winter. Did you know that “Russian Winter” begins BEFORE “official winter?” Yup… it often starts to snow in late October! Here’s a view of the Russian countryside taken this week.

3 August 2015. Our Great Russian Motherland: Vyritsa in Leningrad Oblast

00 Vyritsa. RUSSIA. 190715

______________________________

All conscious Russian Orthodox people know of St Serafim Vyritsky… this was his home. His grave is here and is a special attraction for Orthodox pilgrims. St Serafim prayed for the victory of the Red Army and for the deliverance of his town from Fascist occupation. This town is near to St Petersburg, but it has a deep rural feel to it.
