On Thursday, I left my apartment at 7 a.m. and it was raining. By the time I caught the bus, the rain had trace amounts of snow mixed in it. Two hours later, the flurries were everywhere. Flakes were the size of a penny. By noon, the snow had stopped and the emerging sun had melted most of it away. Grey skies turned blue and the temperature reached mid 50s.
Harbin is one of the few cities in which it is entirely possible to experience three seasons within four hours.
