#FAIL #SNOWPACALYPSE: Chicago & suburbs brace for whiteout conditions - Chicagoist: You Say "Snowpacalypse," We Say "Tuesday"


Chicago's WMAQ-TV newscast with anchor Floyd Kalber,
February 23, 1967 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZIFRsgvMCEY

FAIL #SNOWPACALYPSE

Meanwhile, in Chicagoland, home of "Big Shoulders" and even longer memories, including memories of 1967 and cars with no FWD careening into one another in hilly neighborhoods, neighbors and "former" friends who horned-in one time too many on your family's parking space that you claimed with an aluminum chaise chair... Chicagoist writes:

So the snow projected for tomorrow through Thursday is expected to finally give us the whole "Thundersnow/Snowpacalypse" big dump of white powder worthy of dibs that we've really been missing so far. Already, meteorologists are comparing this to previous large blizzards.

Hmm-m... blizzard conditions, snow up to three-inches an hour and and 60 m.p.h. winds... watching from a safe distance away, as WGN-TV's beloved meteorologist Tom Skilling predicts a low of, yes, , and wind chills 10 to 20 below Wednesday night in Chicago:

#HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

Thumbs up! What a night! #HOLLYWOODFL based photographer and entrepreneur Esther Chuang with a very elated Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy at his Victory Party, held at Leo Anato's Atelier3/AT3 on Harrison Street & S. 19th Avenue, Hollywood. AT3's great environment and the amazing variety of food prepared by chef Kevin Dreifuss, former owner/chef of ENDS MEAT restaurant, was SUPERB! November 8, 2016

Esther Chuang, Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, 2015

Above, perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, which is really saying something considering the THOUSANDS that I've actually seen of her, from all over the world. But despite the fact that you can't actually see it here, trust me, her amazing smile and inner and external beauty are there. This photo is an even more amazing achievement when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to get to the top of the mountain, since it's NOT for the faint of heart. Next time you see her, ask her about that! Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. That's the Christ The Redeemer statue way out in the horizon on the top of another mountain, to the left of her head. �� In case you forgot what the Christ the Redeemer statue looks like, up close, here's another Brazilian beauty to connect-the-dots for you: Gisele Bündchen, aka @Gisele.

Abençoado por Deus e bonito por natureza!✨ ������
