It was a gloomy, messy morning, with steady rain that shifted to snow, and there were multiple car crashes in Skokie Saturday. Still, the weather did not stop people from going to downtown.
At Millennium Park, most everyone was dressed in winter gear from head to toe. There were people checking out the Bean and the glow of the city's Christmas tree. Plus, it's the first weekend of the season that the Millennium Park ice rink is open, so people were lacing up their skates to hit the ice.
