Still a ton of clouds in Chicago, but for a fleeting moment…
the sun made an appearance this morning! Brief though it was.

And expected to get even windier as the day goes on!!! Let’s just say, my morning ride towards the City was tough!!! Some cool clouds & crashing waves… and then the ride back home was AMAZING with an incredible tail-wind!!!

It was a dark start to the morning, without a lot of potential… or so I thought. But soon enough the clouds opened a bit and the colored sky show began to impress.

Another chilly morning with wispy clouds breezing across the sky. Always fun to find icicles frozen along the way… suspended in time, waiting to melt as the sun rises to thaw the day.

Sure, it was a bit chilly this morning… a couple degrees below freezing! But I was so excited to see open sky for a change, instead of the solid gray mornings we’ve been having lately! So you just put on more layers and go for it!!! And when THIS happens… it’s all worth it!!!

It started out pretty nice with some good sunrise potential this morning. But as the sun began to rise, there was a hazy fog hanging over the City. My guess is the sun won’t last too long today… especially with a forecast for rain later today!

It was so nice to get up this morning and NOT have gray & gloomy skies! So refreshing to see clear skies again… knowing that a beautiful sunrise would not be far behind!!!

Beautiful sunrise ride this morning. A bit on the chilly side when the winds came blowing through the buildings from the west. Not a lot of clouds to play with this morning, but the sun found it’s way to glory anyway!

Colorful & chilly… with a chance of frozen puddles!
It was a bit colder than I expected this morning… good & bad. Good to see some cool frozen bushes covered with icicles. Bad to see ICE already… I am so not ready for this!!! Had to be more careful of “puddles” along the trail… now slippery ice puddles!

And oh, by the way… “Dear Santa, I need much warmer gloves!!!”
