Weekly Photo Challenge: Beginning

This is going to be part of my 365 Project: Day 3 – Beginning. To see more entries to this challenge, go here.

Early morning rush hour

Early morning rush hour

It would have been a nice morning but don’t be fooled by the bright sun. It was nothing but frigid, bone chilling January morning. By the time I entered the office, I felt like my skin has hardened like rough leather but it was cold like steel.

Mother Nature is showing us who’s the master. I was even surprised that they call this New Year snowstorm Hercules. It has wrought havoc to the Midwestern states and now they call it the North ‘Easter in the East.

Yesterday it was powdery snow but today it has hardened and it was slippery my car slid and almost hit some parked cars. It was a good thing I was able to control the wheels but for a moment it caught me by surprise.

But this is not the end. My co-worker just reminded me to take home my computers as the prediction is unseasonably low temperatures like we’ve never had in 20 years. Reading -8 high and low of -15 in Chicago on Monday.

What an inauspicious beginning for 2014.

    Bebs, I want full winter. I want the snow and the chill for a couple of weeks. Mild winter no good .. only wet and grey.
    Winter should be winter .. and spring should be spring. The nature think it is spring already over here. NO good. *smile

    Am already tired of this Winter Viveka and it is just the beginning. Especially that I have to go out there and clean my car before I use it and even not, I still have to because tomorrow will be bitterly cold and the ice will freeze my doors and it would be difficult to remove.
