I'm Sorry, I Can't Hear You...
Anyone that's been following the weather or paying any attention to the news knows we've got some seriously cold weather here in Chicago. The conditions on Tuesday night were downright dangerous. Snow, 50mph winds, temperatures in the negative digits...WTF?
I suppose I could move, but I like experiencing four seasons a year. And Chicago, despite its grueling winters, is relatively safe weatherwise. It isn't likely that tornadoes will ever be ripping through our city or hurricanes devastating our homes or 8.0 earthquakes making the city a disaster area.
So, we put up with the winters here and it makes us stronger; crazier, but stronger, I guess. Plus, I want my kids to know winter, like I did growing up (no offense to my warmer climate friends). What's Christmas without snow and blistering cold weather? I don't know if I could have it any other way.
Yeah, a 62 degree sunrise would be nice year-round, but where else are you going to have a 50 degree temperature difference on a normal day?
I must be crazy to live here, but I'm among fellow crazies here. Heh.
