Monday’s snow is slightly more tolerable when seen from a drone

I pride myself on being one of those overly smug Chicagoans who doesn’t complain about snow and the cold, but even I will admit that the 5 inches of snow that fell on Monday was a little much. The flirtatious summer temperatures over the two weeks prior certainly didn’t help.

Cue this video that — sorry to be so allegorical — offers some new perspective on the unrelenting curse of winter.

Noted Chicago drone enthusiast Alfredo Roman took his DJI Inspire 1 out for a whirl on Monday to capture what will hopefully be the last vestiges of winter. If we are going to suffer through snow in late March, we may as well get a beautiful YouTube video to distract us at work the next day.

Roman has previously captured spectacular footage of Lollapalooza.
