I took this photo looking just west of the intersection of Taft and Electric Avenues in the west suburban village of Berkeley Illinois. A suburban Pace bus has just turned right from southbound Taft Avenue, and is passing through Berkeley Illinois on a mild afternoon in December of 2006. This would be some of the last mild weather that the greater Chicagoland area would experience. In January of the upcoming year of 2007, the temperatures began falling rapidly and consistantly. The Month of Febuary would see Chicago caught in an unpleasant and very dangerous deep freeze condition, that would burst underground pipes.
