This “shit” is getting real… all pun intended.
It’s one thing to see all of this craziness going down on the TV news… but it’s another thing when it’s in your own local neighborhood Jewel grocery store! No toilet paper, paper products or cleaning supplies on the shelves. I’m still good… but this is just WEIRD!!!

Another day of October Snow!!!… good thing that this can’t go another day!
Well, snow maybe… but not October!!!

And here I thought the leaves were supposed to fall off BEFORE the snow?! Silly me.

Today started as a beautiful Fall day. Crisp & sunny.
But then the clouds moved in… at least the Fall colors & textures remained.

Spring in Chicago… in between the snow and rain,
we’ve finally got some pretty things popping up around the City.

It’s April… mere days away from May… and then THIS happened today?!
What?… snow again?! I thought we were done with this stuff.

Looks like someone at Lillstreet jumped the gun with their flowers?!
But then again, who would ever expect now this late in April?!

What a difference a couple days can make?!!!… two days ago we had a snowstorm, and today we have snowy white flowers blooming on all the star magnolia bushes. Guess that’s just springtime in Chicago?!!! Crazy.
