Leap Year Day on the river

This is what the North Branch of the Chicago River looks like in the Linne Woods Forest Preserve in Morton Grove this afternoon on Leap Year Day.

Besides the quadrennial uniqueness of the day, something else is unusual today. The sun is out.

It was my 17th birthday!

Trivia question: If I was born on a thursday, how many years will it take before my February 29th will fall on a thursday?

Every four years times seven days in a week equal twenty-eight...so now you know the rest of the story.
