    IN UKRAINIAN it is the standard instrumental ending:

    TATY, how can you be serious in such circumstances? Don't you see nobody including kalinka is listening to each other here? Everyone is jabbering. Somebody is drunk, somebody is insane, Бармалей курит грибы etc.
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Guys, just answer the OP's question!

    зимою is the instrumental case of зимой in its archaic-poetical form! Jesus, why doesn't anyone actually HELP the guy?
