Does Russia ever see a sunny sky? I don't think I've seen a photo of something in Russia that did _not_ have a cloudy, gloomy sky.

The temperature of air in the winter in this city fell below -40 degrees. All houses were heated by a city boiler-house. On it there was a failure.
Pipes on which hot water in houses there and then acted have frozen and have bursted. Inhabitants have started to freeze and them urgently evacuated.
