A Walk in the Snow

17.II.13

Today was probably the snowy-est day we've had since coming to Russia--I would guess we have 2-3 new inches today and it's supposed to continue to fall overnight..

It is beautiful.

We were at that stage where almost all the snow had melted off, so what was left was dirty, patchy, ugly...that kind of depressing "end of winter" look...now it's all nice and pure white again.

Chris has been sick with a lingering cold most of the week, but even he couldn't resist the snow, so we three took a walk tonight. (Incidentally, it was perfect walking weather, but also perfect skiing weather...I hear there are some skiing places not to far away, so hopefully we will have a chance to do that before the snow leaves for good.)

Being outside tonight was like having Christmas again. A couple of the buildings near us still have their lights on, and it was so quiet and peaceful. Walking in the falling snow is the best.

Chris said it was good packing snow and proved it by hitting me in the back with a lightly-tossed snowball, but all Pip wanted to do was run around, so we all jogged a bit. It was cold, but not unpleasant.

We were not the only ones who had the idea to stroll in the snow. There were many people out, families, other pet owners, single people, just out for a walk...it was great.

I love being in a place where I can get out and walk around, and where other people do the same!

There is something very freeing about taking a walk in the snow with your husband and your dog. Best part of the week so far! :)
