Winter came to the central regions of Yakutia in the middle of July, forcing the local residents to turn on their heaters and don warm clothes.
In some districts snow kept falling for several days, thus providing the local children with plenty of material to create snowmen.

However, those who thought that the locals were shocked by this development were in for a disappointment.
A resident of one of the Yakutia villages explained that such snowfall in July is in fact a fairly common occurrence in their parts and locals are pretty much used to it, though it does create problems for deer herders because calves are prone to catching bronchial pneumonia during these cold spells.
