First snow on the ground this season!
  1. I was excited all week
    I had been checking the weather all week, the forecast was going from 3-5 inches up to 8 inches.
  2. It started snowing around 7 pm Friday
    A03171f5 c67d 41e9 86de 6cece7dd16ac
    Perfect timing. Home in pj's, glass of red wine, and my beautiful girlfriend and roommates helping me prep a pie. The snow just glistening in the backyard
  3. Friday night nothing stuck to the road
    The ones of us that are new to winter were running to different windows like "Snow! Snow! Snow!". My girlfriend on her 8th winter said "great. The fucking snow starts."
  4. Saturday morning
    We woke up to the roads still clear but snow accumulating in yards. I had to go downtown and was excited to see the city in the snow
  5. The train into the city
    C30c3614 4f90 4546 b072 6d93d9f9bf2b
    The wind was blowing, but it wasn't that cold (36-37 degrees). The snow had started to blow, but I had hot chocolate, an empty train, and Chicago in the snow
  6. Made it to training in a high rise downtown
    I sat at a conference table and watched snow whip through the buildings downtown. It was heavy fat snowflake snow most of the day. Movie snow.
  7. Leaving downtown
    80cd6281 89f0 4771 a384 ce45a4a7f2a2
    It was just freezing rain. Nothing sticking
  8. Took the train back to the burbs
    2cf1cca2 26fb 41f8 b3bb 26ef40a4fcfd
    By the time I got to the burbs it was real snow. The roads were covered. The snow was blowing. It was whipping into my jacket and sticking to my hair.
  9. The snow stopped by 5 o'clock
    Ba6c652f 03b1 4b7c 9730 1c1f91224d77
    It's been freezing but beautiful since Saturday afternoon. It made the evenings friendsgiving feel cozier
  10. Sunday
    5902136a 0b1a 4d41 8bfa c70865bd17da
    It's been below freezing all day, so the snow has stayed. Made a perfect window view for my binge watching day
