Okay, so my title is a little tongue in cheek, and I lied about the previous post being the last blizzard post. These have been an easy few days, and we haven't had any trouble. We were smart enough to stay off of Lakeshore Drive and not try to take our cars down unplowed streets; so, we've been having a grand ole time. Last night I took a walk to the alley for a few more photographs. The end of the alley was largely cleared by someone, but the snow drifts on the uncleared area were nearly to the top of the garbage and recycling cans. Our garage (the cream colored one by the light pole) looks downright buried. When I opened the garage door this morning, it was much less impressive... I really thought it would be a significantly higher drift than it is. Oh well!As I returned to our apartment one last time for the evening, I paused to notice the landing of our downstairs neighbors. We were in and out many times yesterday, and each time I noticed their boots sitting on the landing unmoved. There were also wonderful food smells wafting under their door. They apparently spent a cozy day in, enjoying some good food and conversation (I could hear them talking, too).
