Civil War hero and two-term President of the United States Ulysses S. Grant (1822–1885) is memorialized with this equestrian bronze sculpture. When the sculpture was dedicated in 1891, more than 200,000 people attended the ceremonies.

The usual good work we've come to know from you. You've captured the scenes as well as the mood and chill.

Thank you Frank! I can't do a 74-image 'dump', so trust me the snow is deep even on Saturday morning after the Tuesday 14- to 18-inch event. The amounts varies more than typical. O'Hare, the city's official reading, was 8-inches while all the measuring points directly along the lake were 12-inches up to 18-inches in Evanston.

Thank you Allan! I planned to be to the statue about 20-minutes earlier in terms of the sunrise and the predawn colors. I didn't account enough for how earlier the sun is now raising as compared to just a month ago.

Thank you Paul, Allan, Frank, Bob! Hopefully, this week I'll receive back the processing and scanning for film rolls dating back to November 2020. I shot 2 rolls on the morning after we added 14-inches overnight to the already 20+ inches we had on the ground. And that was on the walk to the post office to send to California for processing. Here is the start of a digital trip for 4+ hours.

Thank you tradio, Ben, Ken! We average 36-inches of snow the entire winter in Chicago. We received that much in February, on top of what was already an average winter. There's more from this tour coming as I moved south along the lake shore. Glad you enjoyed.

As usual, excellent work, Paul! The tortoise shell shot really appeals to me.
