Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
Where did the cars go?!
WHAT IS THIS I DID NOT SIGN UP FOR THIS
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
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.
'Cause I never get tired of mountains.
My neighborhood under snow.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
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.
Oh man, did WE need coffee New Year's Day!
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
I was fascinated to see a cutoff oxbow river bend. I've heard of them but never seen one.
My street, snowed over.
Flying from Fresno back to Chicago on New Year's Eve. It was beautiful.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
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!
The amphitheater at Millennium Park. Supposedly they have great summer concerts here. It was a little cold in January to imagine summer!
