What a week! I came down with strep throat last weekend.
On Monday a rough storm came through with winds over 70 mph. Our power was out for 3 hours - during Game 6 of the NHL playoffs! Luckily it came back in time for the best 17 seconds in Chicago sports history!
On Wednesday another bad storm came through dropping over 6 inches of rain in a few hour period. Almost all the roads around Winding Vine were impassible due to high standing water. It took me 45 minutes to go three miles as each street I tried was blocked and I would have to turn around.
But now it is Friday and Chicago is ready to celebrate!
In 2010 when the Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup I had a pretty good seat. (click here to see.) But this year the parade never came closer than 6 blocks away. But I did get to see some of the buildings decked out (and a lot of the crowds!):
A six story parking garage.
I have one more strawberry piece that I am trying to finish, but it is taking longer than I thought it would. Hopefully, if I am lucky, I will have it finished to share at the end of the weekend. Wish me luck ;)
"The Lord is not slow in keeping his promise, as some understand slowness. Instead he is patient with you, not wanting anyone to perish, but everyone to come to repentance."
