April Snowstorm

Crib Barn in Orland Park, IL
Covered in Fresh Snow

Winter showed the Chicago area that he's not finished yet. 1 to 3 inches of fresh, wet snow fell overnight with additional snow, rain and sleet expected throughout the day. All this after temperatures near 80 a couple of weeks ago and 50 yesterday.

At least it should melt quickly...

I really enjoyed viewing this one.
Wednsday, April 11th 2007 was not very pleasant working as an outside sales representative. I was stuck in heavy traffic most of the day, and got the back of My pants legs "Splashed" with slush from a speeding snowplow in Norridge Illinois. Brrrr!

This is a pleasant and very tranquil late winter scene. I
too enjoy looking at the old barns in the former rural areas around
Chicagoland. I can still recall
seeing the last of the farms disappearing in south suburban Alsip Illinois during the mid 1980's, and the ones in Willow Springs and Burr Ridge Illinois during the 1990's.

Thank You for preserving these in photographs.
