MOSCOW, March 3. /TASS/. Some 4 million cubic meters of snow cleaned from Moscow streets after a record snowfall could fill 3,200 Olympic-size swimming pools, the capital’s city hall said on Thursday.
The city hall said this amount of snow could also fill 235,140 dump trucks.
"If the dump trucks are put in line, its length will be 2,822 kilometers, which is equal to the distance between Moscow and [the west Siberian city of] Surgut," the city hall said.
Moscow was hit by the heaviest snowfall since 1936 on Wednesday night, receiving 65% of the monthly precipitation norm.
The snowfall canceled dozens of flights and brought traffic in Moscow to a standstill, with tailbacks equaling the distance between the Russian capital and Rome (3,400 kilometers).
