we had ten inches of snow from the blizzard last weekend. some parts of chicago had much more. o’hare international airport recorded more than 19 inches causing cancellation of thousands of flights across the nation.
but before the chaos, the mess, plowing and shoveling, there was an absolute peace. there was calm.
