Our First Snowy Owl Encounter

Today we had two goals....pick out a new, used car and get a good photo of a Snowy Owl. 

First task was due to the fact that Mark got in an accident with an idiot on Christmas Eve and his Focus got totaled out.  So we got enough from insurance to go find another used car and also get new tires for my Charger.  We didn't want to buy anything that would end us up with a car payment yet.  Just find something in good condition that will get us by for another year or two.

So we ended up with a Suzuki SX4 from Buffalo Ford

After that, we were off to Ramsey.  We have heard SO many reports of local Snowy Owls there this winter that we knew it should be an easy place to find one and spend some time trying to get a good photo.  And after 3 hours of hanging out with this beauty, here are some of our favorite shots:

End of the Metrodome

This weekend was the LAST weekend of any action in the HHH Metrodome.  "The Bubble" will be deflated next month and demolished to make way for the new stadium.   There was a season ticket holder event the night before the last game that we went to and got to be down on the field and goof around a bit.

And here are a couple pics from the final game against the Detroit Lions

Head Coach Leslie Frasier (he got fired after this season)

Adrian Peterson - one of the most amazing running backs of all time

So for the next two seasons we have to figure out how to keep me warm to watch the Vikings play at TCF Stadium on the U of M campus.  Eek!!....cold!!!!
