Saturday the area had 60 degree weather; but included strong winds. Our rose trellis and the rain barrel fell over. The wind was strong and sounded like a train when I opened the front door to get the mail. It melted the ice on the streets, alleys and yards. Now more snow is predicted for today or tonight.

Person has fallen into the water.
Others are beginning to relieve person from his problem.
Here another person broke through the ice and cried out "HELP!"
Others are practicing a rescue mission.
Wilmette Coast Guard preparing for a rescue mission. The skies are blue. It is a sunny day but very cold out. Several days before Lake Michigan in this bay had melted all the ice and now this is all new ice forming. Some areas a person could safely walk but other areas a person would break through the ice into the frigid water. Both my husband and I have never viewed this exercise before. What a surprise!

Lake Michigan. Each winter the snow and ice looks different. This year instead of hills of snow and ice I saw thin slices of ice washed ashore. It looked like someone had actually used a meat slicer in the deli to do this. Amazing isn't it?
February brings warmer temperatures. Some ice is left floating on the open water in the bay. Bahai Temple is in the background.
"One of the most satisfying feelings I know - and also one of the most growth - promoting experiences for the other person - comes from my appreciating this individual in the same way that I appreciate the sunset. People are just wonderful as sunsets if I can let them be. In fact, perhaps the reason we can truly appreciate a sunset is that we cannot control it. When I look at a sunset as I did the other evening, I don't find myself saying 'Soften the orange a little on the right hand corner, and put a bit more purple along the base, and use a little more pink in the cloud color.' I don't do that. I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds."
