Imaginary Drama Breaks Quiet of Winter Snowfall

While I was outside with my camera taking a few shots this morning I happened to notice this arresting little image in a temporary snowbank that has formed around a rather good-sized but otherwise inconspicuous birds nest spruce planted in my front yard.

As the snowfall's artistry paints the familiar signposts around our home and neighborhoods, the otherwise innocuous spruce has morphed into some kind of Abominable Snowman bent on carrying the gentleman (shown) away in it's bony skeleton claws!

So that's the noise I heard coming from your way about a half hour ago!
