…or should I say snow week. The snow storm that dumped 18″ has literally turned my beloved downtown neighborhood into a civil-danger zone. As annoying as it is to have five-foot snow piles on every corner and the sound of snow removal outside your window 24/7, I must say, snow.is.beautiful. Plus, who doesn’t love an excuse to cozy up in a coffee shop for hours on end? Hopefully these photos will instill a little love for the midwest.
