Winter Arrives Late

This has been a dry winter thus far in Molossia - but all that changed this weekend when winter rain and snow finally arrived in our nation. It began with rain on Friday evening, a torrential downpour. A brief calm followed on Saturday and Sunday, with rain and then snow falling Sunday evening. Monday morning Molossia woke up to several micronortons of snow blanketing our nation. The snow was wet though and largely melted by Monday evening. This storm marked the end of one of the driest winters on record for the area in a very long time. The most recent precipitation fell last October in the form of rain and nothing has fallen since. In a related weather note, Molossia has seen extremely strong winds this winter. Destructive gales on three different occasions have damaged a new storage building in November and more recently destroyed the door to the new Presidential Office and moved the Post Office six micronortons on its foundation. Here's hoping the severe weather is over for the winter!
