The Pitter-patter of Snow Boots

While it's not snowing much anymore in Montreal, there are huge banks of snow and patches of ice that have been around for months and have yet to melt. Not helping the process is the below-zero temperatures, with no chance of getting warmer anytime soon. Little kids are bundled up so firmly, they don't resemble humans beings so much as clothes hangers. Their mobility is restricted so much by the combined stiffness of their ski jackets and snow boots and mittens and tuques, it's all they can do to stumble about with their arms outstretched. They are, of course, cute.
