Yesterday the biggest snow storm of the season hit Chicago. Never mind that it’s March and we’re more in the mood for spring flowers than snow flakes. It started snowing in the morning, picked up in the afternoon, and didn’t stop until late evening. Officially, the city got 9 inches of snow – the biggest drop of snow since the February 2011 blizzard.
My two older kids’ school declared a snow day, and so we got to spend a weekday together. In fact, I ended up driving my daughter to an appointment that we had moved to early afternoon so she wouldn’t be out there in the evening. But that meant I was out there in the thick of it. Since inclement weather tends to make for good photo opportunities, and I hadn’t been out with my camera in a while, I decided to pack up my gear, bundle up, and roam the parks with my camera. Here is a glimpse of my snow day.
