Norilsk sets temperature record

If you think it was +10C and everyone was sunbathing and enjoying melted snow, you are wrong. It was real +32C. This is the season of white nights (the sun always stays above the horizon) and it must be really great time in Norilsk.

Norilsk is the northernmost city in the world with more than 100,000 inhabitants and the world's second largest city (after Murmansk) north of the Arctic Circle (wiki).
