Weather: Intermittent snow and sun; windy
The TV weatherman described this afternoon’s weather as snow globe weather. It was an apt description. One minute the sky was full of large snowflakes, the next minute the snow was gone, and the sun was out. A few minutes later, it was snowing again. The strange weather made for a strange, but beautiful sky.
My youngest son joined me for a late afternoon walk. We headed to the Tinley Creek Trail System of the Cook County Forest Preserve, but the parking lot I had chosen was closed. Instead, we went to the nearby Model Airplane Flying Field to walk along the edge of the field.
We enjoyed exploring this lovely area while no one was around. We’ve been there in warmer weather to watch the model airplanes and helicopters. The planes and the flying skills of the operators are impressive; the large prairie field surrounded by forest much more so.
Good day, good walk.
