When I tell people I'm from Russia, their first reaction is "Oh, you must love cold weather." And usually I reply with something like "I don't love it, I'm sick of it." But who am I kidding? Despite all my whining, I love snow and can't imagine a real winter without it. That's one of reasons I'm so happy to be living in Boston, because we all know - Boston is cold and it gets a lot of snow! So much snow, that sometimes the whole city shuts down for a few days. I admit, on days like that I feel tempted to stay warm and cozy at home, drinking hot chocolate, watching movies and cuddling with my cat. But I make myself go out there with my camera despite the weather, because Boston looks magical during snowstorms, and I never want to miss it. See more photos below.
