Ludovic Hood and his daughter Saskia put the finishing touches on a snowman on Capitol Hill as a winter storm shut down Washington. After pummeling wide swaths of the South, a winter storm dumped nearly a foot of snow in Washington as it marched Northeast and threatened more power outages, traffic headaches and widespread closures for millions of residents.

 Favorite photo of 2013; The quiet of the morning and the softness of the dawn light combined with the beginning of the journey of life for the little turtle with the long odds makes this one of my favorite photos of the year. )  A loggerhead sea turtle hatchling heads to sea after being rescued from being stuck in it's nest.  -  Clearwater Marine Aquarium's (CMA) Mike Anderson, Supervisor of Sea Turtle Nesting, dug up a loggerhead sea turtle nest at sunrise that had hatched earlier in the week on Treasure Island's Sunset Beach Thursday 10/10/13 to do an inventory on how many eggs hatched. He found 86 eggs had hatched including two little hatchlings that hadn't been able to dig out on their own. Six eggs didn't hatch and two were partially hatched but didn't live for a total of 94 eggs. One of the hatchlings started crawling toward the gulf as soon as Anderson extricated it but the other took a little while to pull it self together. Anderson took them to the edge of the water where they scurried out to sea. Loggerheads lay an average of 100 to 120 eggs said Anderson. The aquarium watched over 230 loggerhead nests this year making it a record year. Eight nests didn't hatch after high tides inundated them. "Also been great that it was a quiet year for storms," he said. Anderson said over 15,000 hatchlings came out of the nests this year. CMA oversees sea turtle nesting on 26 miles of Pinellas County beaches.
