Slice of Life: Three Chicago Things

Three things remind me most of Chicago when I’m away — historic architecture, the CTA, and snow.  This shot of the historic Water Tower (806 North Michigan Avenue) and the Pumping Station (163 East Pearson Street) across Michigan Avenue puts those three elements together.

Though Chicago is more of a cold city than a snowy city, we have exceeded our average snowfall by more than ten inches so far this season.
