-20 below Celsius and dropping in the Tiny Russian Village…

Hot tea weather… I will add to this tomorrow morning…. -20 and it is just 5:30 pm. The sky cleared and when the sun went down, the temperature dropped like a rock. It is brutal out there right now…. Just stoked the fire and it is +20 inside… WtR Update: It is morning and right now 2:30 a.m.. Boza and…

Yesterday we were snowed in for the next few months…

No getting out now. I made my last trip for a few months several days ago. Once the serious snow hits, that is it and unless you have a decent 4×4 you are going nowhere. That is why I am searching for that perfect cheap 4×4 to use in the Tiny Russian Village…. Drifting snow is the killer… Pretty simple;…

Now the Rolling Stones will be on the hit list… LOL…

Last week, a technology reporter for the Washington Post named Craig Timberg ran an incredible story. It has no analog that I can think of in modern times. Headlined “Russian propaganda effort helped spread ‘fake news’ during election, experts say,” the piece promotes the work of a shadowy group that smears some 200 alternative news outlets as either knowing or…

Boza and I walk the Tiny Russian Village world…

We walk and walk all the time. That is what Boza and I do to stay in shape. That is important you know? This morning the air was perfectly still, the trees had become white leafed look, with the snow coming straight down. It has reached -5 right now at 6:30 a.m. but at 2 a.m. it was still zero.…

Just Coffee and maybe Thoughts…

Birdbrains awaiting…

This morning after the snow started to let up some. I found myself being watched. I decided that it would be a good idea to feed the little devils, before they tried to eat me and fixed up another batch of birdbrain food… They are a joy to watch as they fight over the food. They squabble and squabble… Have…

Yup, snowed in…

Well good thing I made that last trip to the Big Village yesterday. Looks like a week of snow and right now it is a literal blizzard. Boza and I are safe, warm and cozy in our Tiny Russian Village home and we walked this morning at 2 a.m., to find the world had become a foot deep and very…

Spared the first round of snow…

We got lucky and the snow missed us in the Tiny Russian Village. More coming, but for at least another day, we will have it easier to get around. It should be snowing right now. The weather station is flashing major snow storm, the regional weather reports say major snow storm, but I see stars and a sliver of moon.…
