when i came home from work after the last heavy snowfall, a lighted, snow ziggurat greeted me. hubs had stayed home from work, since mayor bloomberg asked people to stay out of the city, and had let his creative side take over!people were stopping their cars to have a closer look... a friend thought it was a wedding cake...
we usually don't have enough snow to make such large creations... thank you to a wonderful husband...

yesterday a crowd gathered at my dau's school... there was an eastern screech owl (red morph) in the holly! thanks to dau for this pic... the owl is all fluffy due to the cold that day...
today the owl was still on the same branch, so i was able to photograph (5pm)...i'm afraid the owl did not like the flash very much...
see the owl in the holly at left? this shot shows how tiny it is, and how even at 5pm a little crowd was gathered.
everyone is wondering whether this owl is ok... time will tell. (update... the owl is not there today, thursday...)
