First photo, of the snow-covered owls, taken today. Second one, same view, taken December 29, 2013.
For comparison, the owls are 12" high. The glass railing is 3 ' high.
It's still snowing and will continue for several hours.
This is one of the times I'm glad we're in a condo and don't have to worry about shovelling a driveway or sidewalks. We cancelled M's appointment for today.
