St Francis sits piously in the garden oblivious to the snow around him. I actually had to dig out the 3 foot statue. This year winter came early, first with heavy snow then the -35 C temperatures that settled in for days. With the frigid temperatures the battery in my car died, thankfully I was on holiday and just stayed in until my brother-in-law came with a replacement. Can't wait for spring, not sure how I will get through another 3 months of this!
