If you do not take into account the 10-point traffic jams on city roads and graceful curses to fans of summer tires on cars. However, it looks fabulous from the window and reminds that winter with Christmas will be soon, in a month or two, but warm hats on the forehead and thick winter coats ‒ till April.
