Sunset @ Bunker Hill 02/17/2013 Hi Brant! Took these photos at sunset @Bunker Hill forest preserve (Milwaukee & Devon) Sunday. P.S. Thanks for the mild weather last week! Our furnace went out last Sunday, 02/10, and we went without heat through late Thursday night due to difficulties obtaining parts. It got down to 47 F in our house so we were bundled up like a couple of Eskimos. My husband told me about your warm up forecast & I replied "Maybe we should open the windows?" cause it was cold & damp feeling indoors compared to the beautiful mild weather outside. Even the dogs preferred being outside than in our house! Thanks for giving us something to laugh about & for your accurate forecasts! Diana Micek Logan Square Chicago

Weather Photo - Must have been beaver "Miller" time While walking my dog around Papoose Lake in Palos Park, I saw this amazing Work-In-Progress. I figured the beavers have a strong union, so when the shift end whistle blows, it’s “Miller” time no matter where they are in the project. Woofstock

Winter Weather Photo Hi NBC and Brant, We watch you every night and enjoy your weather photos! The snow we received here in Carol Stream yesterday was great for packing so we decided to build a snow fort and are hoping to see it on your weather photos! Attached is a picture of our snow fort. If you are able to show it, can you please let me know if it will be at the 5:00 or 10:00 news so we can watch for it? The girls are so excited to see it. Thanks! Have a great day! :) The Ellstrom Family
