Welcome to Chicago. The land of high humidity, dead grass, plunging temperatures, mounds of snow, and ice. Lots of ice today.
The road crews have done an amazing job keeping up with the inch of ice piled on top of three inches of snow. It's beautiful and treacherous. And my boxer/husky mix is wondering what kind of nasty trick we're playing on him as he does the Bambi dance outside our backdoor.

Beautiful, isn't it?
Have a safe and happy holiday, everyone.
