Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
Marilyn looks cold.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
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 amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
So pretty. I miss this.
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!
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
