Last night we got seven inches of snow here in the Chicago are. Since the ice/snow mix also made the power go out we had to go out and enjoy the beauty of the snow sticking to the branches. The robins were everywhere, trying to puff up and stay warm. The kids and Dad had fun building one last snowman and heading off to the sledding hill with the rest of the die-hards.
It's a lot easier to take knowing real warmth is just around the corner!
