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.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Marilyn looks cold.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
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.
So pretty. I miss this.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
Where did the cars go?!
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
My neighborhood under snow.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
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!
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
