20 January 2013. It’s an Old School Russian Winter in… Grodno

00 Grodno. Belarus. winter. 20.01.13

______________________________

Despite all the news of “global warming” (and it IS happening), the Russian space still has its old-school winter snows… as this snap from Grodno in Belarus proves. Do pack your snuggy, ushanka, long johns, wool socks, rubbbers, and valenki… you’re gonna need ‘em…

Pyotr Pankratov, a Belarusian soldier with a big heart, saved a squirrel that was on the verge of death, and put it back on all fours. He saw a tiny little squirrel under a tree and took it back to his barracks. To build the little squirrel back up to health, he had to find time in his hectic schedule to feed the squirrel baby food and milk every 4 hours. Pyotr served well, and now, after his demob, he’s a taxi driver. His faithful friend… the squirrel Minsk… is always there. Pyotr built a home for the squirrel in his house. He got it all the necessary vaccinations and officially registered it.
