The snow may be melting, but there is still lots of it piled up, where it has been scraped off roads and paths all winter. And - at last - an example of the snow-cleaning my landlord insisted was the best way to get the dirt out of my carpets. This bloke is doing his winter coat, alternatively hitting it with a stick and a broom, and then turning it over again and again. Brilliant. Wonder if this is still a normal past-time, or just left over from the 'old times'?

    we haven't cleaned our carpets in the snow for quite a few years now. i'm not even sure why. but let me tell you, nothing makes carpets cleaner and fresher than the snow!:)

    cleaning coats in this soviet manner, on the other hand, is pretty surprising. ha!
