1st snow of the season arrived during early morning hours in vladivostok. it stopped around 5pm but the high winds kept the city subdued for the rest of the night. traffic was close to non-existant and those that did travel reported multiple cars stuck in snow drifts and low visibility. i stayed inside, stocked up on groceries and waited it out till morning.
my girlfriend and i ventured out sunday for lunch and to see what kind of damage the snowfall had done. the cleaning crews still had their work cut out for them as even the main roads were still covered in wet stuff. i'm happy to report only one close call as another driver didn't like how slow everyone was going and decided to start cutting people off, me included. sad to see even bad weather doesn't keep the stupid drivers at home.
