Yeah, looks like that here too with the howling winds tonight. It's gonna be a fun ride in to work tomorrow morning. I find warmth and comfort on a cold night like this knowing the Green Bay Packers are in Dallas preparing for SBXLV

Re: Another beautiful day in sunny Chicago

Brisbane is further south and SHOULD be ok from what I last heard.

Poor QLD is copping it terribly these last few months.

Down in Canberra we've gone from extreme heat to massive rain showers today. It's just crazy. Thankfully no where near what the people in the cyclone affected areas are going through.

Gotta love chicago. I'm not a big fan of snow, but 2 days off of school is not at all something that I have a problem with.

RGT... Nice pics. I have the same. Barely made it out of downtown Wednesday afternoon when it started. I love this town but I hate this town! I'm thinking eastern Nevada down the road. Not too hot and not an earthquake issue. Beautiful. Done with insane taxes and snow! Shoveled 4 times yesterday. Still snowed in.
