Today we had a crazy amount of “weather” going on around.
Some scary stuff for this Halloween!!!

Drastic drop in temperature. Gusty winds. Rain. Sleet. A bit of snow.
And some huge waves along the Chicago Lakefront. So much so that they had to close down part of northbound Lake Shore Drive!!! Look closely at the top photo, from left to right, southbound lanes, northbound lanes, bike trail with waves over them, crashing waves, lake!!! Yep – been there… on that stretch of bike trail many a morning!!!

More crashing waves. Sadly, I was busy working this afternoon so I didn’t get a chance to go out and play in the storm. I would have loved to get some photos of my own. Although I’m sure my Mom is breathing a sigh of relief that these are someone else’s photos!!!

Looks like THAT curve of the bike path is a bit more treacherous than normal?!!!
Good thing they posted the signs… I’m sure there are still some people trying to get through!
