6 inches of snow! Winter Weather Advisory! Sounds like December in Chicago…
Now, I’ll believe it when I see it, but the forecast tonight is calling for the first big snowstorm of the year. To “celebrate” the occasion, we thought we’d give you a preview of a few of the images that will go up in the Photography Galleries on December 17th in an installation devoted to snow.
