This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Where did the cars go?!
My street, snowed over.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
So pretty. I miss this.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
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!
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) 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.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
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!
