With that said, I had on two shirts and two hooded jackets underneath my winter coat. Two scarves, a hat, and earmuffs. Sweats over my dress pants. Two pairs of socks and plastic bags over my feet should my shoes get wet from the unshoveled snow.
Even then I was still feeling the chill.
For those of you with an overly-dressed nerd fetish.
At the start of the month, the midwest was hit with below-zero temps. They came again yesterday. Yesterday Chicago had a high of 5 degrees and a low of -15 (not counting the wind-chill factor).
Not fun when it takes me about 20 minutes to walk to work. It was downright scary at times.
But I'm a Chicagoan and was ready for it. It reminded me of the extreme 100 degree heat this past summer where you felt like you were being baked and steamed with every step.
It's just gone from one hell to another.
And yet there's something thrilling being out in this weather.
Most of the streets are deserted and there's an inhospitable beauty about it.
With that said, Seattle was in the fall-like 40's these past two days, with rain today. PERFECT for me. *sigh*
I'm dreading the coming spring and summer in Chicago though and would gladly keep this dangerous freeze over what's to come.
