the children's blizzard

    Newer Older

    Yes, I made them walk to daycare in the blizzard. But only because they made me build a snow man in the blizzard at 6:30 in the morning. And it was just a block--a perilous block.

      looks perilous!

      ah yashica electro: I still want one of those, but trying to get one with working electrics at a sensible price is very difficult:

      I can hear that boy. "Ohhhh!" Some things are worth mild frostbite. Great photo!

      foxglove: the Electro is well worth hunting down; it's the best of the '70s compact rangefinders. I was lucky to inherit mine from my father, who unloaded his classic film cameras on me when he got a little digital thing.

      Twilight Time: That's Jack making the noise; he's a grumbler. I'm trying to impress on them that one of the many joys of life in Minnesota is bundling into your snowsuit; I expect Jack to make his home in Arizona as soon as he can drive.

      if its gotta snow, it better snow like this. and you should walk in it. and you should build a snowman with it. i'm just not so sure about 6:30 in the morning!

      Some daddy...sends the tikes into teeth of the storm so he can get this shot. Good decision, mahartford.

      The kids are essentially props; the sooner they accept that, the happier they'll be. I shamelessly use them as my entree to all sorts of events. Sure, the psychoanalysis fees will bite me someday, but it's worth it.

      I've noticed that kids are pretty tough sometimes when it comes to snow and cold weather. They probably liked it.
