Blankets of January snow in Chicago, copyright 2014 Pamela Breitberg

Records have not yet been broken. Two more inches of fresh powdery snow fell overnight. Our 32.5 inches of snow this January is only the third snowiest for Chicago.

This image was taken yesterday afternoon, while the winds were still and the temperatures a balmy eleven degrees. The topmost blanket, about six inches, is undisturbed. Our deer neighbors are hopefully warm wherever they have bedded down. Their last appearance was over ten days ago when two groups encountered, one pair and one trio, and playfully frolicked through our snow covered lawn. In the interim, all is still, as silent shadows lay weightless on the snow.
