Snowing In Salem

Here are some photos that I took from the windows, and just outside of the Hawthorne Hotel today.  I thought you might enjoy seeing our viewpoint.  The first set of photos are specifically of something that was taking place on Salem Common.  Someone built two snowpeople, a traditional "man" and a something else, and I took some photos with my longer lens of a person who was either finishing up the job, or someone who was trying to edit what he found.

So it turned out that whoever built the snow people didn't have "things" with them to finish the faces, etc., so our team went out to complete the job.  Here are some photos of the finished product:

 And then the team got the bright idea to throw snowballs at the camera woman (me) after a local who took the group shot that included me (above) left.

These following photos are all shot from the sixth floor of the hotel.  I started in the corner, shooting from room 620, and then proceeded around the building as much as I could.  Unfortunately all of the "02" rooms that afforded this same view were occupied, so there is one corner that is not as complete as I would like.

I hope to see you here.  And I hope it is not snowing.
