I love the title! My only real experience with Chicago is the airport, and even that was during the summer. But I did spend a winter about 15 miles from Champaign-Urbana and it's not an experience I care about repeating.

Nice shots here!

What a great blog you have! Science, bugs, raptors, you've got everything a garden nut like me enjoys. I've added your blog to those I follow so I won't miss a post.

Nice series. I grew up on the lakes; can't say I miss that much snow.

I meant to do this when it snowed this weekend and didn't. I am so glad YO did. The pictures are lovely. This is my first visit to your blog, but I am bookmarking it and will be back, it looks fascinating.

Happy WW!

Those are gorgeous shots. There is nothing like snow on the green needles in my opinion.

Secret Mom Thoughts said...

Nice shots. I'm looking forward to spring though.

Beautiful photos, they resonate with the feel of a crisp winter Wednesday. Your weather has been much more intense than ours here in the northeast but then your photos also reflect a lot more natural beauty. Thanks for posting these.

How pretty! We don't see this type of stuff much in the South! Not that I miss snow all that much -- spent some time in Massachusetts. Brrr.....

The only time I was in Chicago, it was January (for the SICB conference) and I loved it. I had to buy all sorts of extra winter clothes that I don't really need here in NC, but it was worth it.

So nice to meet you in person! I heard only the best about your session. Perhaps next time you can come and do a science-ey stand-up comic routine ;-)

And what I really, really wanted, but never found time, was to sit down and talk voles with you! Next time!!!!!

I love it when the boughs are full of snow! Beautiful!

NoBS said...

I especially love the 3rd picture! Just beautiful.

DNLee said...

Oh. I always love to talk about voles. Next time, for sure.

Such lovely, serene pictures! When you live in a Chicago winter, it can be hard to remember that it's not all slush and misery--it's beautiful, too. Thanks for celebrating the humble urban evergreen!
