Snowfall of the Century Pummels Russian Capital

A record snowfall buried Russia’s capital this weekend.

Tatyana Pozdnyakova from Moscow Meteorological Bureau told the state-run TASS news agency that the snowfall was the heaviest to hit Moscow in 100 years, adding that the capital was in the midst of an “Arctic invasion.”

The snow wreaked havoc across the city, downing trees and causing long delays.
