It snowed

It's no Buffalo Blizzard, but we had some snow here in our little corner of Belgium last weekend. Yes, even in Hautrage. As you can see from the photos, it covered some stuff. This is our memorial to the Great War. It stands, as do they all, in the Grand' Place. I'm very fond of this monument, especially its statue. (Don't tell anyone in the surrounding villages, but I think ours is the best memorial around. It certainly has the best statue. It's much better than the one those fancy pantses in the county seat, Saint-Ghislain, have.) I have another view to post one of these days.

The other photo is our bridge shot through the snow and over the goat pasture. It has only two goats, but this is where they hang out, so I think that qualifies it as a goat pasture.

I saw snow in Garner about 10 days ago. This is important as I had not seen snow in over a year down here in SC where I am now. Nice turkey weekend with your daughter. Seeing the nieces once in a while on the holidays has turned out to be one advantage for me with your overseas posting....Uncle d

What is the sentinel holding? Is it some kind of weeapon? It is interesting. The model must have been a home guard dad or something.

Did the goats go inside like the cows or do they winter in the two goat pasture? It's easy to see why there are only two goats. They are the only two not smart enough to figure out that they could just walk through the big gaping hole in the fence -- or maybe they are the smart ones that decided to stay where it's safe and where food is provided.
