Here is how you know winter is definitely here…

The steam heating lines are fired up and all the ventilation shafts fog when it is cold…

+ 6 this morning and it looks like it could even freeze next week. Not a hard freeze, but below zero regardless…

I love winter, but I need to get to the Tiny Russian Village before the snow hits…

A survivor of six heart attacks and a brain tumor, a grumpy bear of a man, whom has declared Russia as his new and wonderful home. His wife is a true Russian Sweet Pea of a girl and she puts up with this bear of a guy and keeps him in line. Thank God for my Sweet Pea and Russia.
