These are the photos that surrounded the shot used in the Weekly Photo Challenge: Future Tense. I posted these as a slide show.
Only by the calendar did we know it was the first day of spring in Chicago.
This photo was taken in March 2009, when it was so cold, Lake Michigan was frozen over for as far as the eye could see. Last March, we were in the 80’s. This March we are having difficulty getting out of the 30’s. I chose this shot to remind me that while it is still cold and temps should be in the 40’s, it could be a lot worse.
