Chicago: clearing storm

It’s been extraordinarily cool in Chicago for the last few days (today’s high will be about 71°F or 22°C), and is expected to remain so until Saturday. It’s good weather for ducks, especially yesterday when it rained on and off. The storm cleared for a while in the evening and then began again. Here’s a photo, showing downtown, during yesterday’s brief period of clearing.  Click to enlarge:

    Nice. The skyline, juxtaposed between outer space and more earthly realms below the ephemeral, is sublime.

    Nice shot, Jerry. I love how the skyscrapers are piercing the cloud deck.

    From up at the level of the clouds, people inside the skyscrapers can see nothing. Those above have a nice view of the top of the cloud deck. That’s God’s territory. Not surprised if they feel a bit superior to us Earthlings.

    Looks like downtown is in a snow-globe. Nice shot.
