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?

  1. 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!

    1. 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.

  2. 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?
