Last week or so, I was beyond stoked to see my first street art in my own town. I was heading to work, and caught a glimpse of it on my drive by. There's a fork in the road, and in between the fork lies an itty bitty abandoned building. I have no idea what it used to be; maybe a gas station, but that's just a stab in the dark.
Someone had painted a very detailed realistic looking moose, charging three little plump, blue, creepy bunny cartoonish characters. They're hard to describe, but picture a skeleton in a bunny suit...with just the skeleton face showing, and the rest is a short and stout blue bunny body.
I've enjoyed driving by now every day looking at it, and kept telling Mike that I need to go photograph it before it's gone. Well a few days after it arrived, two of the bunnies disappeared under some gray paint! No! I was bummed, for sure. Not long after, the third disappeared as well. The moose is still hanging on, though, for which I'm grateful.
Today I had to run an errand very close to the painting, so afterward I parked my car in a nearby lot, and walked over to snap a pic of the guy. It turns out I don't even think it's painted on the building at all; it looks like paper that has been stuck on (you can sort of see the nose peeling off in the top photo).
I just had my phone with me, so they're not the greatest of photos, but I'm happy I got some pics before he's gone.
If you look closely at the photo below, there's a tiny drawing of one of the bunnies in his antlers! That's about what the larger ones looked like.
When I got home, I grabbed me camera since I've been wanting to document how much snow we've gotten, but haven't wanted to actually go outside, haha. I figured I was already cold and snowy from taking the other pics I might as well. Plus it's a pretty calm and sunny-ish day, so yay for good lighting!
I poked my yard stick into the snow in a few different places, and this was the first; 19.5 inches!
deep snow prints...
It wasn't as deep by Mike's disc golf basket; about 15 inches. I think the basket looks funny with the snow covering most of the pole, making the basket almost level with it. :)
One more check, and it's 20 inches. It's hard to say for sure how much we've gotten, with all the drifting and stuff, but let's just say it's a lot.
And, one of our backyard. I think I got some breath on the lens in this one...oops!
How's the weather where you are?
