photos for my brother

My brother wanted to see just how deep the snow piles around here are(were) . . . so a photo montage, if you will: (keep in mind that these pics were taken after the first meltdown on Monday, so the snow isn’t as deep as described in an earlier post)

Wow. That's all I can say. I promise to never complain about ours again! Hang in there! It is mid-March and surely Spring will come soon!

Unbelivable.........and I agree with those other people, I ain't complaining ever again about any snow around here. Maybe we could send you some of our winds to get rid of the snow, it usually will put a big dent into it, if nothing else......
Take Care, Love to ALL.........

St. Petersburg

Saint Petersburg: Sankt-Peterburg, Russian pronunciation: is a city and a federal subject of Russia located on the Neva River at the head of the Gulf of Finland on the Baltic Sea. The city's other names were Petrograd (1914–1924) and Leningrad (1924–1991). Founded by Tsar Peter I of Russia on 27 May, 1703, it was the capital of the Russian Empire for more than two hundred years (1713–1728, 1732–1918). Saint Petersburg is home to more than two hundred museums, many of them hosted in historic buildings. The largest of the museums is the Hermitage Museum, featuring interiors of the former imperial residence and a vast collection of art. Celebrating the 300th anniversary of its foundation, Saint Petersburg was selected as the main motif in a recent Finnish commemorative coin, the €10 Mannerheim and Saint Petersburg commemorative coin, minted in 2003. The reverse of the coin features a view of Saint Petersburg, with the Peter and Paul Fortress and its three turrets. In the coin the words "St. Petersburg 1703-2003" can be seen.
