Good morning and welcome to Summit Up, the world’s only daily column that can’t resist a good snow leopard photo. Is this the damndest image you’ve seen in some time? What the hell is going on here? Is it the spirit bird, as we suggested, or what?

OK, here’s the real caption: “A robin comes to the attention of a snow leopard and his meal during feeding time in Dublin Zoo as heavy snowfalls and freezing conditions continue in the Republic of Ireland Wednesday.”

Oh, well, whatever. We guess this is the the sort of thing that goes on over in Ireland, but man, weird stuff!

Here’s an Angel Alert! Angel Alert! from John and

Carolyn Spillane, who write as such:

“About 3:30 Tuesday afternoon we were driving down the Summit side of Hoosier Pass when we moved over to let a vehicle pass and got ourselves into deep-enough snow to trap the car. A man stopped in a car going uphill, then turned around to help us in the freezing wind. As we unloaded our tow cable, a man with a friendly chocolate Lab going downhill in a truck stopped to help and pulled us out of the snow. Both men wished us a good day and went on their way, leaving us to marvel, again, at how wonderful the people of Summit County can be. Our heartfelt thanks to both of them!”

Nice! Angel wings all around! It’s always good to know in our busy lives that some folks aren’t too busy to come to the aid of someone in need.

Folks, it’s Thursday: Do something with your life!

We out.
