Chicago Blizzard Update: The wind has been roaring...

...around my building here, just a half block off the lake (Michigan). My windows are frozen up and I am unable to see out.

The solution?

Watch Johnny Depp and Al Pacino in "Donnie Brasco"!

Grabbed this frame because of the twin Towers in the background. PLEASE, any and every Moslem...never, ever try to explain to me that Islam is the religion of peace...EVAH!

Depp and Pacino, at their finest!

I truly admire Joe Pistone for all he sacrificed...to do his job...to do it right.

I have seen many disgusting things in my life...

...but Amy Woodruff takes the whole damned CAKE!

Yes, it's long...watch it anyway--and LEARN?

Taxpayer-funded...erm...that would be "We, the People"..

From my Window: Chicago's Blizzard

It was my intent today, when I arrived back home around 3 PM, to set up the camera and tripod at my window and do a shot every hour or so to show the progress of the Great Blizzard of 2011.

The window began to fog (actually, the storm window) around noon. So, all I can show you from the lower, unscreened half is my friend the mannequin, desperately trying to stay afoot during horrendous winds (which are rattling the windows and impacting the building heavily).

I crept the camera up to a place where, through the screen, you can see at least something of Sheridan Road, the Farcroft building, and how little snow there seems to be at about 5:45 CST.

BTW...that "egg-stremely bright light" just right of center is courtesy of the Shambhalah Center, at the corner of Sheridan Road and Sherwin Avenue here in Rogers Park. It is "ON" 24/7, shining right into my window, making my apartment very bright at night.

It is an irritant.

Jeesh...you'd think these psuedo-Buddhists would have more manners, huh?
But, then again...it's Rogers Park, the most northerly neighborhood of Chicago, where some of the most liberal "hippies" and "wanna-be hippies" live--sorry for the redundancy.

I hope to get out tomorrow, if the wind dies down a bit, in order to show you some more of out Great Chicago Blizzard (?)
