Well… I’m not sure what everyone has heard already, but this winter was supposed to be a cold one in northern Europe/Russia. I had heard that while in Reading and was glad I was heading further south. Apparently it has been really cold in places like Russia and Ukraine (where upwards of 123 people have died). This morning after getting to class, we noticed that it had started to snow lightly. Our professor told us that there was much talk on the news about a cold front that was moving into Greece. He also told us that Thessaloniki only ever gets snow maybe once a year (and in Athens it is once every 5 years).
