These days South Bend is feeling more like Siberia. If the substantial snowfalls we keep getting aren’t enough, we are also constantly dealing with sub-freezing temperatures. For the second time this year, the city of South Bend declared a winter weather emergency. And this is coming from a city that is most certainly accustomed to big winter snowfalls. It’s hard to stay creative from a visual standpoint in these arctic weather conditions, especially since I’ve been shooting the same photos in essence since late November. Spring cannot arrive soon enough.
