So, at 445am this morning, our visiting collie started barking and work tara and I up. Tara went downstairs to quiet him, came back up. The windows were open, and as she came back up I heard "hoo hoo hooo, hoo hoo hoooo." She heard it too, then we heard 2 of them calling. So we got up at 5am, wandered outside to find the owls. They were 2 blocks away, unfortunately too dark to see into the trees, however, as we got closer one flew out clear as day, big ole owl. The other one was already too far away. So there you have it, 2 hooters in Ivyland, besides mine.
And, Mars was next to the moon last night, pretty cool.
