"Easter" Snow Sculptures


Winter 2013 brought a lot of snow to our area and inspired the creative sculptor who built these stoic "Easter Island" statues on a front yard in our city this week. I took pictures of them today after work.


Red-winged Blackbirds and Robins always return by the second week of March but there is an exceptional amount of snow remaining on the ground for this time of year. If I was in charge of the weather, I would grant one more week of winter for skiers during the upcoming March break and then  call on spring to melt the snow away gradually.


The snow cover and sunny days have set the stage for a good maple syrup run this month. After last March's summer-like temperatures which ruined many tree crops, we really cannot complain about this winter's slow departure. But I am more than ready for spring to come by the time Easter arrives at the end of the month!!

  2. But who built those sculptures and when? :)

    This is really good maple syrup weather this year with daytime temps above freezing but nighttime temps below.

  5. Some people are so creative!

    We too have more snow on the ground than usual for this time and it seems to have delayed the birds just a tad.
