This Egyptian Revival monument was originally named the Liberty Memorial and dedicated to those that died during the Great War. Two Assyrian sphinxes flank the Liberty Tower. Each sphinx hiding its face with its wings. The sphinx shown here is known as Memory, facing East toward the battlefields of Europe. The other is Future. Click on the image for a larger view.

Heading into the weekend, a winter advisory was issued. This was our first major winter storm since moving to Kansas City.
