I freely admit, I have a love/hate relationship with Chicago. Great city, great people, great architecture. So what’s the problem? It’s cold in Chicago. I mean, REALLY COLD! The “windy city” is so aptly named it’s amazing. I actually had to hold on to a street light to keep myself from being blown down the block like some piece of yesterday’s newspaper. What the heck? I don’t know how all y’all Chicagoans do it. I thought NYC got cold but this is another animal. That being said, every single person I met in Chicago was super-nice and friendly. Maybe they have learned empathy from dealing with the elements every day. Dunno.
