the (sunny) calm after the storm.

It's crazy how quickly things can change.

And the weather in Chicago proved that this week, since these photos--taken of the same views--were captured literally two days apart...

Oh, and what's really nuts? I'm legitimately afraid to open the door to our balcony because this giant wall of snow is trapped between the storm door and the screen door...  
So when we do eventually open the door, there may or may not be a mini avalanche in our apartment... And we'll have fresh flowers on one side of the room, fresh snow on the other.

... That has to be some kind of metaphor, right?


P.S. Check out this amazing collection of the best blizzard pictures.

My aunt posted a video of the snow blizzard in Chicago. I hope you guys are safe and warm. The weather's been super crazy lately. Even on my side of the world where it's supposed to always be warm and sunny it is now super cold and it's been raining day in and day out.
