I discovered this odd situation with the alley sign last summer and frequently pass by to check its status. It’s still there – I wonder how many years it took for the tree and sign to become one.

In the Northwest corner of the community, regular rail lines and Light Rail lines converge. Deliveries take place there, visible from the Lake Street westbound onramp to 55 West. Taken around 11 AM, temperature 10 degrees, much better than the previous day.

Today I went walking along the outer edges of our coverage area, wanting to see Minnehaha Falls encased in ice and having heard rumors of snowy owls in the neighborhood. Walking along the creek the crows alerted me to this barred owl who they were pestering. These owls blend in beautifully to the winter landscape and it’s such a treat to spot them.

I’ve seen numerous films at the Riverview Theater and nearly as many community events. This is an amazing theater. And this is Jake Halverson, Riverview Theater’s jack of all tradesman, who has worked for the theater for over 6 years. When asked why he works for the theater, he said, “There’s a certain level of loyalty [among the patrons] you cannot deny…people know they’re not just a number here but have a name.”
