Emergency responders were kept busy Saturday by numerous weather-related traffic accidents in the area. "There's a lot of traffic crashes, a lot of motorist assists, people going into ditches," Winnebago County Sheriff's Sgt. Tom Brimhall said. "When it first started snowing, the roads got pretty iced-over and then were covered with light snow right away."

I love all the angles of the @taubmanmuseum in @city_of_roanoke - my hometown.
3 versions of the same photo. Learning to fly with my good buddy @dangkessler at Green Hill Park. Daniel and I spent our youth learning to fly and to navigate growing up together. And while we don’t hang out much as young adults, it’s always great to reunite back home. #flying #drones #djidrones #theta360 #360photo

I suppose it's always been this way. And I know I'm not the only one.
Winter time feels like a lonely time. Short days. Long shadows. Long underwear.
The light of the world is dimmer, like a tiny lightbulb pulling the last drops of juice from an old battery.
Winter time makes me feel like an old heavy battery, slowly pushing what little I have left.
My empty bed, still with its tousled sheets, waits for me in the winter light.

Happy to announce my 1st place entry in the @nppa Central region’s October clip contest. Judges comments: “1st place photo has an ingenious way of incorporating the reflection, no doubt requiring a good command of lighting expertise.” Photo: Cathy Adams of Rockford sits for a portrait in her "Jeff Gordon room" where she keeps a wall full of her favorite NASCAR driver's memorabilia on Tuesday, Oct. 16, 2018, at her home in Rockford. 📸 for @rockfordregisterstar #rockstarzphotos #photojournalism #portraitphotography #jeffgordon #nascar

Making movie magic with iMovie, like one does. It’s not the slickest video editor, but a mastery of the basics goes a long way. #videoteaser #rockstarzvideos
