Dragon's Teeth

For the unwary in Three Rivers, the dragon waits. Small children walk on the other side of the street.

Offered for dinner on Monday and Saturday this week at the Three Rivers American Legion Hall, gizzards and burgers. A local delicacy, I presume. I'm imagining it all breaded and deep fried. I'll check my calendar - oh sorry, I'm busy elsewhere those nights.

Life is intruding into my CityDailyPhoto time! I'll try to do better.

Now, about those arms...

Sun and blue skies after yesterday's storm. This fine snowman showed up, jaunty despite some rather strange anatomical details!

The marshmallow snow was dripping off the trees in balls of ice. Crack! Crack! falling bits ricocheting off my car while I was driving down the street.

Marshmallow Snow

Big change from yesterday - a storm with lots of heavy, wet snow, globbing all over everything like marshmallow sauce. This is looking down Portage Avenue. The highway was awful.

The picture that didn't come out: while I was waiting for a light, four big snowplows went by in a line - followed by a little tiny pickup truck with a plow on the front. Looking very much like the little brother tagging along with the big kids!

Ice Shadows

Brittle ice still holds some nice shadows. The resident pair of swans are visible in the distance. This is the section of the Portage River in Three Rivers called "Hoffman Pond" - here's another shot from the same spot taken last September: Morning Mist.
