It's a bit late, but now that the laptop is back, I can catch up on some things. The kids went for a walk and moved some blocks of packed snow from the street to just outside the door. It made me smile when I opened the door. I figured it was one of the local pranksters and only later found out it was my own kids. Nevertheless, I converted it to a snowman and there it sat for many days, as people stepped around it to come and go as we left, and there it stood sentinel while we were visiting the 'ota states.
