Yesterday’s Snowstorm

The storm that dumped 10-ish inches of snow in Milwaukee yesterday had moved out over Lake Michigan by this morning. Can you see the dense wall of clouds looming just beyond the downtown skyline? I took this photo on the way to work this morning, pulling over on the hill next to the old Pabst Brewery. That’s the new Bucks arena under construction in the lower right-hand corner of the photo. In fact all of the cranes are working in the same area on three sports-related projects: the arena, a clinic/sports-medicine center, and a parking structure.

Back to the storm: poor Racine, Kenosha, and probably Chicago got hit again with about the same amount of snow today, thanks to the “lake effect” as cold winds from the northeast swept across the water and picked up additional moisture.

At least we’re on the right side of winter now. Instead of ten inches of snow followed by an instant 30-degree drop in temperature, we are supposed to get into the 30s by Thursday and 40s by Friday and Saturday.
