And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
My street, snowed over.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
So pretty. I miss this.
Mom and I caught a very early flight to Chicago on New Year's Eve.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
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.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
Marilyn looks cold.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
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!
Snow on a fence along Lake Shore Drive.
The Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
My neighborhood under snow.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
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!
