There’s a rumor that we are in the middle of a brutal Chicago winter. I don’t know, I just don’t see it. Heck, we had a thunderstorm last week. Yesterday I was out in a shirtsleeves. Are we in a parallel universe? I’m not complaining, I’m just sayin…. I went downtown recently to get shots of Michigan Avenue with holiday lights and snow, but it was raining. Here are some photos, you tell me if this is Chicago in January.
