Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Where did the cars go?!
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
So pretty. I miss this.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
I saw this cheap trunk at Home Goods and wanted it for a coffee table, but couldn't transport it home. The next day, after work, I went back to measure it and see about shipping. And I decided just to strongarm it back on the bus. When Mom called to ask if I'd found out about the cost, I said, "Oh, yeah, shipping is free." Just a little sweat!
I was pretty impressed with this snowfall until the one that hit later in January. The second one shut a bunch of busses down. But the first one sure was pretty!
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
My first major snowfall (and the only one I really faced this year). I sure wouldn't want to drive in this! But I did learn that it takes a hell of a lot to shut this city down.
