These were flowers for my friend in Milkwaukee who I met in 2006 in France. Who knew one protected flowers (tulips under there) from snow like this?

This stately building is now the Hard Rock Hotel where we stayed for 5 nights. Very nice! Very AnExactingLife – you can try a guitar in room!

  • I would love to go to Chicago! And stay at a Hard Rock Hotel 🙂 Love your coat. Now I am craving pizza with a side salad.

  • You are wearing the Coat with Delicious Lining 😀 What gorgeous buildings. I’ve always wanted to go to Chicago…it’s on the list. Interesting to see the snow adaptations. I have never seen a bag of snow salt before. And love that idea of the trolley escalator. They must exist somewhere in Australia, but again I have never seen one!

    • It was such a good coat, it got to use almost as soon as I’d paid for it!

      We have those inclined ramps for trolleys, but never seen a ‘trolley’ escalator like that one.

      Chicago is definitely adapted to the snow, so they could handle the day of snow, and then it was gone.

  • Salad in the cold. How very virtuous of you!

    That pizza iPhoto is making me nauseous.

    As to trolley escalators, are they ramps that you stand behind the trolley on?
