Heavy snowfall continued for a second day in Moscow on Monday, with temperatures hovering around 17 degrees Fahrenheit (-8 degrees Celsius), but feeling more like 2 degrees Fahrenheit (-16 C) with the wind chill factor.

Reports state that the total snowfall this winter has reached nearly 10 feet -- twice the usual amount -- and temperatures are almost 10 degrees lower than normal.
