So, going into work earlier this week in Chi-town I notice that the edges of the River are frozen. I just think to myself, “Wow it must be pretty damn cold out there to freeze that little chunk of water.” Then as the week goes on, I notice that this whole river is frozen and there are birds sitting on it. In case anyone is wondering, it’s -5 degrees and with the wind chill it feels like -15. I love this city.

I guess this is the price to pay for living here because no other city tops Chicago in the summer time. BBQ’s, Beer Gardens, Cub’s day games. 3 more months!!!
