Pinocchio Masked

.
We had some snow last night, enough to make the morning commute treacherous. The eastern two-thirds of the US is really in the freezer, with low temperatures in St. Louis for tonight and tomorrow night predicted to be about 0 F. or -18 C. Still, there's a good side to it. This was Citygarden's first complete snow cover since it opened last summer. Pinocchio here exults in it, although with that cold compress on his eyes I wondered if he had a migraine.

Maybe he's wearing snow glasses to keep the snow out of his eyes? Cute picture.

Even though he is embracing the winter snow with open and welcoming arms ... we know he is a liar.

Wonderful find, Bob.

I'm surprised the cold didn't shrink his nose!

«Louis» thinks it's a migraine induced by the fact that Pinocchio realizes we've been had by the perpetrators of the "Global Warming" hoax....

Oh, it does look like a bad headache. Poor boy. As if he hasn't had enough problems.

Definitely colder than here but we've got an icy northerly wind as well now.
I always have to laugh when I hear on the radio that -5° C in Paris is... Siberia!

Poor Pinocchio, he needs someone to knit him something warm and a baseball cap!

Have a wonderful weekend, keep warm!

I cannot tell you how much I miss St. Louis. Dear Pinocchio...what a great picture. All the best.
