Proper Snow in the City
When it starts snowing in Vladivostok it may last the entire day. Local authorities always act surprised that it is winter again. Every year winter arrives at the most unexpected time for the government as the streets are covered with snow and the city is stuck for two days at least. If you wake up in the morning and it is snowing, you may stay at home and don’t bother going to work. It will take you up to several hours to get to work if the snow is heavy.
The sea freezes during the winter so that the fishermen go on ice and dig holes to catch some fish. Imagine hundreds of fishermen dressed in heavy clothes with only their eyes exposed to the cold air sitting on their wooden boxes, waiting for the fish to eat their bait. Some of them would go to a local market to sell the fish, drink some hot tea and go home.
