    Does the snow ever get too much? And how come you always have sunshine. When I watch Wallender it’s always grey and dull.

    Love the capture and the wonderful silence of snowfall. I’m wondering who has the whitest face, your Oskar or our golden, Dutch. He’s thirteen now and doing pretty good, thankfully.
