Hallandale Beach Blog -A common sense public policy overview offering a critical perspective on the current events, politics, govt., public policy, sports scene and pop culture of the U.S., South Florida and Europe, especially the UK and Sweden. In particular, Broward & Miami-Dade County, and the cities of Hallandale Beach, Hollywood & Aventura. Trust me when I tell you, this part of Florida is NOT the Land of Lincoln.

#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


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/entrepreneur Esther Chuang w/Hollywood Mayor-elect Josh Levy

What a night we had! #HollywoodFL based photographer/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

Perhaps my most-favorite photo ever of Esther, out of what seems like the tens of thousands that I've actually seen, despite the fact that you can't actually see her truly amazing smile or dazzling beauty. But trust me, you know that it's there! An even more amazing photo when you know the backstory of what it took for Esther to just get to this particular spot. At Morro Dois Irmãos, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, on her birthday, July 10, 2015. ��
