Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
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!

Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.

Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
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!
