Let's admit, our Mother Nature could be easily titled as one of the most—if not the most—prominent artists on the face of the earth. The masterpieces she creates each and every day never fail to inspire us and make us feel things. Unfortunately, though, our daily lives and busy routines often distract us from noticing them. Luckily, there are people who do their best to remind us how magical nature truly is.

Kirill Bakanov (@WeatherSarov1 on Twitter) is a guy from Russia who has a Twitter account dedicated to sharing daily updates on the weather in Russia. Each of his posts includes an impressive picture presenting the mesmerizing piece of art the weather conditions that day have created. With that being said, Bored Panda invites you to look through some of the most fascinating Russian weather updates from Kirill Bakanov's Twitter account. Besides, we had a chance to ask Kirill some questions—you should definitely scroll down for the interview.

"My name is Kirill. I have a science degree in ecology and geochemistry. Five years ago, after a severe storm which hammered my city, killing two people, I started to be interested in meteorology and severe weather," the owner of the Twitter account told Bored Panda.

When asked, how the idea to post these weather updates came to him, Kirill told us this: "I realized that to get more complete information on meteorology it was necessary to interact with scientists and amateurs from all over the world. That's how I discovered Twitter. When I started browsing Twitter, I saw that there is very little news on natural disasters from Russia, or it comes with a big delay. In 2018 I decided to share news from Russia with foreign readers."

"Most of the photos and videos I find on Vkontakte (most popular social media in Russia), Instagram and Facebook. I use keywords to search for news. For example, смерч (tornado), ураган (severe wind) etc. I also monitor the situation on volcanoes and thunderstorm activity," Kirill told us. "Approximately 5 percent of the content I do myself."

Well thank goodness they remembered to put the wipers up so they wouldn't freeze to the windshield.

When asked, what he enjoys the most about posting these updates, Kirill told us this: "When I post the news, first of all, my goal is to tell the world about beautiful and extreme weather events in Russia and the countries of the former USSR. When a post gets a lot of views, I understand that people need such content."
