    Ha! I can :D ... and did. Now no one understands any longer what that was all about, heehee :mrgreen:

    And hey, this looks COLD!
    If we had a winter like that, also I'd be looking forward to summer.
    As it is, we slipped from summer to autumn to spring ... or we get winter in spring, who knows.

    But I have never seen a river this frozen, ever.
    Where was your vantage point for these?

    Then those in Georgia, swimming through the humidity and bugs, and laying in their sweltering puddles of sweat, will be dreaming of some ice and snow. :wink:

    Nice shots and equally nice view!!! Been exceptionally cold (about 20-30 degrees below normal) lately, but this week well be back to normal and that ice should be gone by next weekend.

    Downtown Chicago is an interesting place. Driving around can be a bear if you're not used to the area but there's lots to see and do for sure.

    Yes, because Chicago is never nasty and humid in the summer. :roll:

    I believe you're thinking of one in ohio. The chicago river is nice and clean ever since we turned it around to send our sewage down south instead of into our lake.

    There's a meet-up coming soon!

    Also, we've got some great public transit, so driving is silly anyway.

    What, a few weeks of nasty humidity compared to several months in GA? Trust me, it gets humid here, but nothing like in ATL. I remember it getting sweltering in early June and not letting up until mid-September. Picture the hottest, most humid days here in Chicago. Picturing that? Good. Thats the NORM for GA/FL/SC/etc. Its brutal, I speak from experience. When I moved back up here from TN, I was wearing a light coat when it was 75.
