The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
My neighborhood under snow.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Where did the cars go?!
I took this picture for Mom. This bar isn't far from my apartment, and we ate several dinners there in September when I moved out. It sure looked different five months later!
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
My street, snowed over.
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.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
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!
