    Default Russian Winter

    ok, another off topic Russian post, but hey, it's weather related, so we can all enjoy.

    This one shows the depth of snow in Russia with some soldiers.

    I especialy like the shot of the soldier on skis with a white rabbit on his arm (what?!?!?!)

    I am glad we don't have to shovel anything like that on a daily basis on the summit.

    I just finished blowing leaves from my driveway and front yard (don't ask how long it took me). One thing I noticed is that this year there are NO acorns on the ground. The locals would say this says this will be a mild wind. Maybe you should get your tickets to Russia now for skiing.

    That would be interesting if Maine sees a mild winter and Florida a cold winter.

    "Blowing" leaves? What? No rake? I always wondered why it was a leaf blower and not a leaf sucker, seems those blown piles just go everywhere anyway.

    I did see a woman in Maine using her upright INDOOR vacuum on the front lawn one time though...
