Chicago Finally Got it’s 2010 Winter Snow

Well FINALLY. SNOW. I mean, really! We have had an incredibly mild winter. Don’t get me wrong it’s been cold. It just hasn’t been COLD. “Chicago style” means more than just our famous pizza, we get a kind of cold out here that really puts us on the mad in the lower 48. The only places that probably DON’T get credit for being super cold are the Twin Cities in Minnesota; theose guys have built sky walkways to get around. That place is insane (but nobody talks about it, so it doesn’t have the rep).

But yeah, remember a couple of months back I did my little piece on insulation when we got our first snow? No? Must not be a regular reader, well since then we had maybe 10 days where I’ve had to shovel. And as for as temp goes; let’s put it this way my last month’s gas bill was 8 dollars and this month 9. Now to be fair I insulated the HELL of my house (after all it is a renovation project I intend to sell) and I’m also on a bill payment plan you can get to divide your bill into 50 dollar payments-but that still means my bill is only 60.

At any rate; it snowed. So you know what that means! Time for me to go stand in my doorway in my underwear and take pictures and hope nobody sees my naked ass and my crazy hair. Ok, so this first pictures give you a clue about the severity.

A few hours later it calmed down enough for me to get a couple of shots where you can at least see what’s going on.

And finally around 4 AM ( hey I work on the internet, I keep weird hours) I was able to go out and shovel. My stuff was so clean that by morning I had dry ground, but those are not exciting photos…
