From my iPad, while waiting for a friend in Libertyville, IL. 8F and windy.
I can't complain. This is the first bitterly cold day this winter. We've barely had an inch of total snowfall. This is, so far, Chicago's least snowy winter on record and possibly the warmest.

Love the photo--a very Edward Hopper-esque composition.
Congrats on the iPad, BTW.

My fiancee and I went out to lunch near home today (in Ukrainian Village), and we had to walk about a half mile to get there, not far. The sun was out, but......freezing! When we walked against the wind, my mouth actually hurt!
Still, you're right. This winter has been mild. And I personally would prefer very cold days with sun and no snow to slightly warmer days with snow.

Thanks, Ruth and Retriever. Once in a while, the final image looks like what I thought I was seeing. I was thinking today that the larger display area of the iPad probably makes it easier to get a sense of what the final image will actually look like.
Ruth, yes Hopper. Hadn't thought of that. Given your line of work/vocation, I imagine you're very attuned to these things.
The cold was penetrating, no? I left home without realizing how cold it was with the windchill. Though I was wearing a parka and sweater over my shirt, I discovered to my dismay just how cold it was when I walked about 100 yards from a parking lot to the Starbucks where I snapped that photo. One of those days in Chicago where the people on the street are either catatonic or exchanging knowing glances of horror as they pass.

You are very fortunate there to have his most famous work, "Nighthawks," in the Art Institute of Chicago's permanent collection. Your photo definitely reminds me more of "Early Sunday Morning," though.
