This is the season’s first major snow for the region. 

In Chicago, residents were digging out of more than 11 inches of snow.

Photos: Freezer Frozen ‘Landscape’ By Gary Jensen

Can you believe that these are photos of ice in a freezer?

Who knew an industrial freezer could be so beautiful? Icicles hang from the ceiling, while stalagmite-like ice rises from the floor.
Who knew an industrial freezer could be so beautiful? Icicles hang from the ceiling, while stalagmite-like ice rises from the floor.

Last November after more than 80 years, a gigantic walk-in freezer from the Fulton Market Cold Storage Co. in Chicago was defrosted.  

Photographer Gary Jensen had captured wonderful pictures of the ice before it melted away.

I think that the photos are very, very beautiful and the ice on the top part of the freezer looks like storm cloud.

An anti-war and anti-NATO demonstration was held in Chicago yesterday.

REUTERS reported that police said four police officers were injured and 45 demonstrators arrested after baton-wielding police clashed with anti-war protesters marching on the NATO summit in Chicago on Sunday but a lawyer’s group assisting protesters challenged police figures, saying at least 12 protesters were hurt, some with head wounds from police batons, and more than 60 people detained.

The protesters in Chicago’s anti-NATO demonstration said that police were brutal and attacked peaceful demonstrators. 

Protesters in Bersih 3.0 riot in Kuala Lumpur also claimed the same but it was some of them who started the violence act.

I wonder why people are always making demonstrations nowadays.

Demonstration always starts peacefully but soon things will turn bad and police will be blamed.

A demonstration can become a riot from a riot can become a war.

So is that good ?

Why can’t adults find better ways to solve their problems or to say what they want?

I am sorry that the pilot and the co-pilot were killed during the crash and for all the people who lost their letters and parcels .

They must be very sad especially the pilot’s and the co-pilot’s families.

I had been to the Tokyo Narita International Airport on the way to Chicago.

Anyway I had not been to Guangzhou, China.

I think FedEx will try to send new things to the people who lost their things in the plane crash.
