Real winter becomes not so common season even in Naliboki Forest in Belarus, where historically winter started usually since mid-November and ended in the late March or early April. The climate change is seemingly destroying our lovely winter, and the last winter period of November 2019 - March 2020 was snowless and almost without frost. Moreover, the winter 2018-2019 finished so early in the mid-February.
We like real winter with deep snow cover and frosty weather a lot. While looking forward to winter weather, last autumn we were talking about how good the coming winter would be with a lot of snow and frost. But even December 2020 passed nearly without real winter days. We met the New Year with rainy weather. We were upset with this winter and agreed that this winter would be as a long nasty autumn again. However, suddenly during three days after Orthodox Christmas winter has finally arrived to where we live, to Naliboki Forest. First we faced with a heavy snowfall, and, according to the forecast, then we should be waiting for strong frost next weekend.
Below you see some winter photo-collection that we took during the last few days at our house, in the wild of in Naliboki Forest and in some small villages at the forest edge.
