The Schlep to Work...8:45am...
Here are some photos from this morning's walk into work (yes campers, I walk to work)...enjoy!
Watch that pretty little head of yours! Did you know that "falling ice" injuries are quite common here? Chunks of ice will fall off the side of a building and whack folks in the head. Ouch. I'm a bit surprised that they already have these out, given the fact there's not too much ice accumulation going on. At least this strip had the courtesy to salt their sidewalks.
The corner of Michigan Ave and one of the Lake Streets. You really can't tell from my camera phone, but the snow is-a-blowin'!
Contrary to popular belief in the city, we do have snow plows! It just takes them a while to get around. We have 90,000+ miles worth of streets in Chicago and less than 300 plows. Do the math, campers.
More to come later...assuming that I'm not setting up camp in an igloo around lunch. They're still predicting upwards of 8 inches (translation...some icy sleet and about 3-4 inches of slush).
