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!
Snow falling toward one of my neighbors' ornamental lawn lights.
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!
More of the houses around me, but with snow.
Mom and I ready to go out for New Year's partying!
My neighborhood under snow.
Well done, thou good and faithful snow boot.
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.
Everything's white! Waking up to this was SO weird.
Icicles on a church in my neighborhood.
Where did the cars go?!
Stolen from my Path account, I love this filtering.
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 Bean, formally known as Cloudgate. I can't imagine having to clean the fingerprints off of it.
Trib Tower, look particularly Gotham-esque.
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!
The Hancock Building on a sunny (FRIGID) day.
And here we are with the Bean as a backdrop. It's seriously awesome, which you really can't tell from these pictures.
