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!
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR 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!
Where did the cars go?!
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
The Water Tower, one of the few buildings that survived the Great Chicago Fire.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
This is Salvation Army's "officer training" campus. It's a freakin' awesome old house that sprawls out over at least an acre.
So pretty. I miss this.
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Marilyn looks cold.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
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!
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
