Watch your step! One wrong move and you could find yourself flying off Rogers Avenue beach pier falling through the ice into the bone chilling waters of Lake Michigan. The iPhone was definitely not built to withstand subzero temps. It hibernated for twenty minutes after this photo shoot.
Some readings put the region just below or just above zero right now. Give it another couple weeks of this weather and Rogers Park's coastline really will resemble the arctic. The sunrise photos from today and yesterday look like they were taken at some other time or place. The lake is still steaming today. And where there is steam there is always potential for steam devil formation (discovered in the 1970s).
