Some bicycle friendly signs, wood sculpture, and the storm

One of the reasons I chose Albuquerque to live was, of course, the top notch nursing school, but also I wanted to live in a bicycle friendly city. It is very cycle friendly. This is a crossing button for bicycles.
Here's another one and you can see that it is right on the edge of the curb. These aren't everywhere, just on known bike paths. All the way to the right you can see that pedestrians have their own crossing button.
I just took this because I liked it. There are roundabouts all over the city. They're usually in residential neighborhoods to keep people from speeding. The sign shows how to go turn right or left or go straight.
Here's a picture from right outside my doorway of the storm in my courtyard. I live on the 4th floor and you can see what the make-up of my apartment complex looks like.
Just another picture of the storm.
Here was a snowman I saw before the storm started. We had a break of a few hours between precipitation. He looks a little sad with all the leaves, grass and dirt in him. Plus he has no face. Oh well, at least they got the snow off the grass.
A lot of people have wooden sculptures in their yards. I liked this one because it was painted. He's nice.
I pass this one everyday and it was only yesterday that I noticed it. If you're not paying attention, it just looks like a pole.
