Another chilly day here in the City as buildings are spewing ice everywhere you look!
Beautiful stalactites of ice!!!

Warmer than yesterday with just a few clouds on the horizon. We’re thawed and a lot drier… making it also “safer” for early morning pedaling. So great to squeeze in a sunrise ride in January!!!

With a bit of a wind, this morning was easy, breezy, beautiful…
oh wait, that’s someone else?!!!

A beautifully warm & rainy day… perfect for a working weekend get-away to New York City.
Gray & gloomy… yet nothing but blue skies above the clouds.
Fun times… and my first time flying First Class!

A chilly, but beautiful, afternoon for a serene winter stroll along a semi-frozen creek on my way out to another family holiday gathering. Plenty of blue sky and quietly trickling water.

And yes, it was a bit chilly this morning for my bike ride.

After last night’s first frost & dusting of snow, our trees were quick to loose their leaves. Creating beautiful carpets of color under every tree. Some beautiful mixed medleys, while others created a stunning ombre blended sidewalk.

Woke up this morning with the first dusting of snow in Chicago.
With a forecast of more to come. I’m SO not ready for this!!!

Rain on the redbud tree. Sadly, no bike ride this morning. Mwah, mwah, mwa-wet.

Hey, at least we had sun for a few hours before this cloud front moved in.
You can almost see Tom Skilling’s row of dashed lines & triangles up in the sky
right along that line of clouds!

Sure, Monday’s eclipse may have been a big deal, but I kinda prefer a “sweet eclipse”!!!
