Over the weekend I spent a bit of time wandering through the conservatory in Lincoln Park for a photo session. The flowers were beautifully blooming in the elevated greenhouse temperatures - quite a welcome escape from our recent weather. Chicago has been flooded after a few days of non-stop rain leaving many with flooded basements, the absence of hot water or heat, and impassable roads to drive on. We're lucky we weren't affected other than having to re-route ourselves on the commute to work, but many others weren't as fortunate. Sending lots of positive thoughts to those that are still struggling to clean up after last week's storms. We are ready for sunshine.
