-25 Celsius and Russians Install a Playground…


I had to go back today and take a picture of what I found the workmen doing yesterday. It looks like they took a day off today and that is a good idea. The humidity is in the 90% and the temperature is way below -20, with a fair breeze around 8km per hour. Other words, “It is colder than a – Blue-Belly Hell!”

So Boza and I went and looked over what they had done and I am here to tell you that the ground is frozen like solid rock and the holes they dug, were dug by hand and with a steel bar and shovel…

I find it interesting that Russians do the same in Winter as they do in Summer and I guess the fact that Winter is over at least half of the year, that has a lot to do with the reasoning…

I just wish that I was a kid and could play at this playground. I would have loved to have had a playground like this when I was little. Freezing weather or not…
