Residents of the Far East of Russia were one of the first in the country, who had an opportunity to play the "game of car curling."
In the city of Vladivostok, many could experience a sudden change of weather, when temperatures fell below zero overnight and all the sleet in the streets turned to ice. A snowfall made weather conditions even more extreme and roads even more slippery.
