Walked the Dog and my tears froze in Moscow…

I am drinking a good cup of hot chicory and have the extra heater on. I got a little bit cold.: It was about -27 below Celsius as I walked the dog and my eyes started to tear up from the cold. That is when I realized that my left eye had frozen shut. Not badly, but still the eye lashes had frozen together. Then I realized that a tear had frozen on my cheek. Now that was so cool… (No pun intended!)

By the time we had gotten back from an hour long walk. The temperature had warmed up to about -25 below zero Celsius. (Yes a proverbial heat wave.) So I checked on Yandex what is -25 C in Fahrenheit? It is around -13 F… (Which means -27 C is around -17 F)

We probably stayed out to long and by the time we got back Boza was starting to feel the cold and was trying to keep any paw paw he could off the ground. He decided that two paws on the ground was the best answer… 🙂 (Better yet in my arms would be the best!) I could not feel my face and that seemed like a good time to go in…

Walking the dog in Moscow is always an experience and since I walk the dog a lot, I get lots of experiences…

That is why I love Russia and now I am going to go make a cream of chicken noodle soup for Sveta and I, for tonight on this bitterly cold evening…

PS: I see old ancient Babushkas walking around in this weather like it is nothing. I realize that they have spent their whole life in these conditions. They are battle hardened people that know no other way of life. Also when the sun shines, even at -25 below zero, the mommas have their kids out in the sun playing in the parks. The kids can not get up if they fall down due to all the clothes and coats, but that is what mom is for, to pick them back up as they flounder in the snow. Then the moms pull their kids around in sleds all day and do the shopping…

That is why I love Russia…
