Early morning walk

The meditation and the 8:00 a.m. gym class were cancelled so I headed out for another walk through the snow.
It seems the neighbor cat peeked around the corner before retreating back to her side of the building.

The library was yarn bombed in the summer and the bombs still remain, now capped with snow.

Snow on this yarn bomb bike staple.

I need to go back and check to see what is usually under this cone of snow.

I’m guessing it is decorative grass.  It’s so very conical.
Here’s some sewer work that was interrupted by the snow.

At the Interstate/Lombard intersection there was trouble with this truck.  Other cars had to back up and a passerby directed traffic, so he could make his turn.

His chains were not quite affixed.

Birds were out and about.

More drifting snow.

  1. I really love the look of animal footprints in the snow. Is that weird?

    I'm unfamiliar with "yarn bombing." What is it?

  2. I like animal tracks in the snow too!

    Yarn bombing is when anonymous knitters add homemade creations to public things. For instance the "Allow Me" statue (the guy with the Umbrella in Pioneer Square) got a cheerful holiday sweater. Mostly you see it with bike staples, like above, but someone did the Broadway Bridge in a big way last fall. Here's an Oregonian article about Yarn Bombers: http://www.oregonlive.com/portland/index.ssf/2010/09/yarn_bombers_have_a_blast_in_p.html

  3. We have some fun yarn bombings here, too! I agree, the snow tracks are great! We have some on our blog, too!
