Boza and I Took a Walk… (3/4/2011)

Boza and I take a walk several times everyday, but today is a touch better than most days. It is only -2 c. outside and I can hold the camera to take pictures without my hands freezing. So Boza and I decided that we needed to take pictures on this fine March day with the sun shining… (It is Spring you know!)

First off, this is what all our paths look like. We have spent months walking narrow paths between mounds of snow. In fact there is so much snow that they really do not have anyplace to put it right now…

But for some reason they decided to start digging the playground out today. There is about 2 feet of very hard packed snow on the playground. I really think it has to do with the melt coming. You see under this whole complex is pay parking. At a million rubles each to buy a car spot. I think they need to get the snow off because they have issues with water seeping into the underground areas…

So since Boza and I like big trucks and backhoes we stood and watched for a few minutes… 🙂

Boza says, “I see a dog over all this snow and I wanna play…”

Then this is an example of the business in the basement that I always talk about. In Russia you put a business anywhere. Even two flights of stairs down into the recesses of the earth. This entrance goes down three levels and when they are done there will be about 8 shops down below in this one area…

Then we found our car. I finally got it dug out and it took 5 guys to help me this time. She was buried deep. But she starts at -20 below c. and purrs like a kitten. (Well as much like a kitten that a Volga can.)

Then I turned around and found a pile of snow taller than me by our front door. That pile might be there when the fourth of July comes around…

That is it and we went inside. The wind is blowing like a March wind except no kites in this weather. We also are going to get some more snow and the temperature is going to drop again. So Boza and I enjoyed our Spring walk…
