Chicago's New Year Snow

Chicago had nearly two days -- New Year's Eve and New Year's Day -- of near-constant snowfall, followed by a lake effect snow machine on Jan. 2 that dumped several more inches.

NEW YEAR'S RESOLUTIONS IN 2014 On January 1st, 2014, there is a centennial of resolutions for everyone to live through from the 20th to the 21st century. Considering that my Grandmother was born in 1901, thirteen years before at the turn if Victorian Times, some are not around to experience the changes which have taken place within the last century. The first day of January 2014 brings frozen temperatures, snow drifts, and arctic weather conditions to the Midwest by Lake Michigan in the USA. Everyone is ready for Winter in 2014, including the Polar Bear Plungers who had to break ice by the frozen Lake Michigan to take the icy plunge on New Year's Day. Given the sub-zero temperatures experienced by commuters with windshield factors and Lake Michigan effect on New Year's Day, the first resolution is to bundle up in warm double layers of clothing and wrap up head and face for protection against the snow-drifting winds while walking during blizzards and snowcasts. Get Totes Snowboots with walking threads for safe snowtreks during snowstorms. Do not procrastinate in 2014 by waiting until the last minute to get anything done. Keep up with all your electronic devices...if you can... Save your energy and do not waste any time on uselessness. Hurry up to get things done in 2014. Remember the past and the lives of those who made history come to life for the last one hundred years since 1914. Record time lapses in 2014. Blog life as the year goes by during the 21st century. Keep up with your personal health, fitness, and balanced nutrition to survive the weather changes. Stay out of trouble and away from difficult people for the whole year. Observe all national holidays with time off when all services are closed. Write down your goals for the New Chinese Year of the Green Wooden Horse. GET VICTIM'S COMPENSATION AND RESTITUTION AS AN ILLINOIS VICTIM OF HEINOUS HATE CRIMES FOR LOMBARD RESIDENT HOMEOWNERS IN DUPAGE COUNTY, ILLINOIS BY LAKE MICHIGAN

Weather Photo Candidates: Mag Mile During Snow Brant & Cheryl: I'm not sure which of you is doing the news tonight, so I'll just send the Weather Photo candidates to both of you. Also not sure if you prefer e-mail or social, so I'll cover both. Last night I bucked common sense and headed downtown in the crazy snow to grab a few shots of the Mag Mile in its "high holiday" mode. I could not believe how cold it was as I fought the snow and tried shooting these with frozen fingers as I kept drying my lenses and camera. But I think they came out pretty well. (FYI - Although it was snowing like crazy, the falling flakes don't show much due to the long exposure.) Hope you can use one on the news tonight. If so, let me know. Thanks, as always for your consideration - and turn off that snow machine!!! I've also plowed 4 times in the last 24 hours. Good luck today - it's gonna be a busy one for you guys!
