Moscow Is Covered With Snow

Two days running Moscow and a number of other cities are paralyzed by the huge amount of snow. The first serious snowfall of this winter was marked by record-breaking traffic jams.

      Yandex.Probki’s congestion rating for the capital hit a record for this year, with nine points out of 10. The situation didn't improved even at twelve o'clock, when on regular days it doesn’t rise above six points. Analysts expect the maximum traffic points in the evening. 

      This situation was further complicated by the enormous amount of snow on the city's roads, as the community services have n't enough time to clean it. The snow is now falling faster that it can be taken away. Of course that, stuck in a gridlock, Muscovites took the advantage of the Internet and started directing their anger towards the city authorities. In their turn, the officials say the situation is under control.

      The whole length of traffic jams in Moscow has already been about 3,400 km - it is equally to the distance between Moscow and Novosibirsk.

      According to preliminary forecasts, the snow will be falling till Friday.

      Anyway, there are a lot of citizens who are really happy to see so much snow, as the major portion of December was extremely warm and rainy for Russian climate. They say the snow creates festive mood better that any Christmas decoration. And it is really difficult to dispute about this opinion. 

      You can see the detailed information about gridlocks in Moscow here - on Yandex.Probki service.
