Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
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.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
My neighborhood under snow.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
My street, snowed over.
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!
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
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!
Where did the cars go?!
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Mom and I take the obligatory "hey, it's us in the Bean!" photo.
