Sidenote here: I think in the "blog world" weather blogging may be considered "snooze level" blogging. Well, deal with it. I know ya'll got a lot of it from me this week on the weather, but as I'm originally from California, now living in Portland, the weather in Chicago this week has provided me with several informative affirmations;
-I'm very lucky to live in the beautiful climate of Portland, OregonWith all of that said, it's snowing out there people. It looks like it's really snowing. Here are some pics from my office window, and I'm telling you, it's not looking good. My colleague from Portland is sitting at PDX due to weather delays into Chicago, and now I'm a little worried about my flight back Friday morning. Please, lord, don't make me endure hours of waiting at the Chicago airport, or sitting in the plane on the runway, waiting for hours and hours and hours. Well, I won't worry about that until later. I still have reservations tonight at Rick Bayless' Topolobompo (whoo hoo! love that place) and I'm there no matter what.
-Weather below 10 degrees is a painful, hateful thing, and the strong souls that endure it are both amazing people and freaks
-I didn't know what I had growing up, spending Christmas at the beach, and never really having to wear a winter coat. (Hope you heard that mom and dad: thank you for raising me in Southern California!)
