Brrr… bring out the woolies, snuggies, and long johns! Temps in the Midwestern USA were about 19 degrees (40 degrees F) below normal… now, that’s COLD. All aboard for the “Siberian Express“… via Calgary, Nome, Unalaska, and Cape Anadyr! Don’t forget the jug and don’t forget your mittens…

00 Minneapolis 2013 Easter. Russian Orthodox. 05.05.13

He is Risen, indeed!

Воистинну восресе!

My good friend Denise lived in Minneapolis MN for a while, and this image of last night’s Easter service there came my way, which brought her to mind again. I visited her grave at Jordanville last night and laid a red Easter egg on it. Yes… we Russians do that… we visit the graves of our loved ones at the Easter time. I wept…

Вечная память!

Eternal Memory!
