Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
My street, snowed over.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
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.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
'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 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!
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Marilyn looks cold.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Snow is so *quiet* when it falls.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
