What a winter!

Finally! After four years of warmer than usual winters we have a proper winter as they used to be. Starting from the beginning of December, a stable an unusual jet stream meander brought us polar air for most of the winter so far.
And when the polar air meets the warmer moist air of the Mediterranean and the Black seas, snow storms are created - like the one we had at the beginning of January that dumped 30cm of snow in the city and more than half a meter on the high mountains around Brasov, on top of older 20-30cm.

Here are some photos taken this January, during ski touring, hiking and running activities that I did around Brasov.
