At 10:12 Sunday morning, Dave and Lauren Priest observed the owl. At first it could not be seen from the highway, it was not visible due to the berm.  Lauren walked a brief way to look over the berm, and was within 10 feet of the bird.  The Snowy then flew a brief distance into the field. Perhaps Steve Dinsmore called it a female due to its immense size?
