Yesterday was the 1st day of Spring … except in Illinois. This is how Chicago does Spring. Blizzard-like conditions, below freezing temperatures and wind chills. Niiiice, no? I took these pictures just after 1 in the afternoon. The 1st shot is the management office building, the 2nd is the parking lot across the street – see the headlights on the car? That’s how dark it is outside. The bottom picture is the flag in front of the office. This is our “wind gauge.” The shots are kind of blurry because the snow is falling so thick and fast, and visibility is so poor – just 2/10ths of a mile. It’s blurry with the naked eye. The weathermen are saying we should get around 7″ out of this one. Ahhh, good times, good times.
