Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
My neighborhood under snow.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
Marilyn looks cold.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
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!
Where did the cars go?!
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
My street, snowed over.
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!
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 Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
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!
