Chicago’s east wind
Gains lake’s chilled momentum –
MI feathers ruffle.

      And the cold continues, yes. Bone-chilling outside for humans, with layers on. The poor birds!

    Poor shivering baby as winds gain speed. I can feel the ripples off the Great Lake.

    The days are in the 60’s the nights still in the 30’s –
    It’s a wonder if we can keep our health not knowing how to dress!
    Really nice illustration of that robin!

      Today it’s sunny and in the 50s, which has warmed the house right up. Another day with the heat turned off, yay!
