This morning it was - 12 C at our place as I shoveled the coating of snow off the driveway at 5 am . I was reminded of the scenes I had seen of the military action on the eastern front, or in the Ardennes ,the battle of Norway or Stalingrad.
I could barely take 30 minutes in these conditions and the fighting men on both sides had to do this for endless periods in battle conditions . I can’t imagine what it would have been like at Stalingrad. There isn’t enough Vodka in all of Russia .
