If you live in Kansas or Oklahoma or Louisiana or some other place, you might think that you deal with the most extreme weather on the planet.

But I think that Russia might have those places and a bunch of other spots on the globe beat when it comes to crazy weather events.

Russia is absolutely enormous, so its people deal with every kind of climate imaginable…and, by the looks of the photos you’re about to see, it gets pretty wild over there.

Let’s see what’s going on weather-wise on the far side of the world.

1. Whoa! A waterspout!

You don’t see that every day.

2. The electric sky.

Be careful out there…

3. Have you ever seen such a thing?

I’ve never even heard of a Sun Halo.

4. It’s really coming down!

That doesn’t look like much fun.

5. Freezing rain all over the place.

I bet this was not fun to deal with.

6. Now that is cold!

Everyone is better off just staying inside.

7. Have you ever seen The Thing?

This reminds me of that movie.

8. That is very beautiful.

That might even be alarming to see that in the sky.

9. This is pretty cool.

A perfect ice circle.

10. Here it comes!

You better take cover!

11. Extreme blizzard conditions.

So glad I don’t have to deal with this kind of weather.

Now we want to hear from you out there.

Have you ever been to Russia before?

If so, what did you think of it? Talk to us in the comments!
