The view out my back window this morning.
Reading Stefan's post over at Monty's Caravan this morning inspired me to document the over 16 inches (40.64 cm) of snow we received over the weekend. A lite dusting of 1-2 inches Friday night followed by an all day affair Sunday left the once brown landscape totally covered with white. I love the look of sparkling unbroken drifts of snow... which reminds me that I still have to set the bear traps to keep the neighborhood kids from tramping up my lovely view!
Typical morning in Minnesota... perpetuating the myth.
After excavating the truck three times yesterday, it was nice to see that it was still visible this morning. The truck bed was completely full though, and it always feels weird to shovel that out. Luckily I don't really have anywhere to go today other than a quick jaunt to the Post Office. Now that I've chilled things off a bit, especially my readers from more fairer climates, it's time to heat things up a bit...
Sorry Turks... Winged Hussars FTW!!
I make no secret of my love for cavalry on this blog, and Polish Winged Hussars are by far one of my favorites from history. That being said, Anne from Anne's Attic was kind enough to pass along the following inspirational video to me today (Thanks again!). Like my previous goosebump inducing piece of cinema Cavalry Charges - Nerdgasm!!!! these type of vids make me want to start rolling the dice, crack out the paints, or just run around the front room with a broom between my legs (No hobby horse, sorry. :-/ )
"But sir, they've got frickin wings!!"
This also reminds me that Warlord Games recently added Polish Winged Hussars to their Pike & Shotte range (More preview pics here). I'd love to hear any feedback if anyone has already picked up this boxed set.
