Cold Chicago Winter!

Happy new year!

I mentioned in my last post that we were having an extremely strange autumn, with the weather being warm and sunny. Well, Chicago winter has come around and hit us with a bang. It snowed two weeks ago and the temperature stayed below 0° for both of those weeks. The warmest it got was 15°.

Don’t get me wrong, I’m not complaining. I’ve always preferred the cold to hot, humid weather. And after that autumn, I was relieved that it was getting cold. But I was looking forward to going out and playing in the snow with my siblings and I couldn’t do that when the weather was so cold. It took my breath away just to walk from the car to the grocery store. However, it is warming up now (30° fahrenheit) and maybe I’ll go out after lunch.

Two days after the first big snowfall, I woke up to find the bottom of my window covered in ice. And the ice was on the inside.

The next day, as I was walking up to my door, my mom pointed out that it was so cold, each snowflake had managed to keep its perfect shape. I grabbed my camera and stayed outside for about 15 minutes just taking pictures. I got lots of pictures and I think most of them came out pretty well.

You can almost see each snowflake’s shape.

I tried using the flash for this picture and it came out slightly blurry. Probably because I was so close. I think my hand was shaking a little as well.

And that’s all from me. 🙂

Have a great day!
