The Tokay Boulevard sheep are sleeping under a blanket of snow

The Tokay Boulevard Sheep Are Sleeping Under a Blanket of Snow
The Christmas display on Tokay Bloulevard on Madison's west side is one of those that people make a point of driving by every year, even if they have to go out of their way. The shepherd is keeping a watchful eye on his flock, but they're sleeping under their glowing blankets.

This year they got buried by the blizzard and will remain under their coverlets until their electric warmth melts some of the snow. Here's what they look like in a more normal year, when they are on top of the snow instead of under it. (I never can pass the scene without thinking of the Philip K. Dick title that became the movie, "Blade Runner" -- "Do Androids Dream of Electric Sheep?")

I live a few minutes away from this display on Tokay, and I get such a kick out of it! Love your mysterious, glowing-snow shot.

Just ran across your blog when I was googling pix of Lake Wingra and found your sandhill cranes.

Now I'll have to check it regularly.

LOVE the sheep! We made a point to drive by before last week's big snow and we were very glad we did. Thanks for the pictures!
