Snow Day Trip to the Zoo

12 Feb

Over the last 9 days, depending on one’s location, Chicagoans have received over 18 inches of snow. So what exactly does that look like on our deck?

And at Lincoln Park Zoo?

Surprisingly, not too many people decided to venture out.

But we did find some hearty souls enjoying the afternoon.

And scores and scores of icicles.

As we reached home, the sun began to erase the clouds,

and paint the sky a beautiful blue,

reminding us once again, in the words of  “Hal” Borland,

No winter lasts forever; no spring skips its turn.

Lucky for us on both counts!

Ciao,
Judy

    Reminds me of when we lived directly across from LP Zoo gates! So you know, it’s snowing in Cortona, too. Not much accumulation, but ferocious winds. See you in the spring…. Ciao, bella!!

      Yes, I heard about the snow and have seen photos. I know how ferocious those winds can be. Hang in there and see you when it’s a bit warmer!
