About 2 weeks ago Riscani was hit with lots of snow. At the time I was spending the weekend in Chisinau, so I had to stay an extra day since the buses were not running in Riscani. I actually didn’t believe it was that bad until I arrived in town on Tuesday afternoon. In Chisinau there was only 2-3 inches of snow, but in Riscani it was more like 2-3 feet. Now, 2 weeks later, barely any has melted because it has been really cold.
My host dad has been working everyday to clear more and more of the snow. He even cleaned off the roof to his garage/shop area. Here are some recent pictures of the beautiful snow.
