Pearls Before Whine
My Chicago friends are freezing right now (30 below!) and I'm not going to gloat. The night before last, Lake Shore Drive was closed down, leaving people stranded in their cars. In some places, Lake Shore Drive is like a highway. Closing it is like closing Sunset Boulevard all the way from the ocean to Silverlake. There was so much snow that workers couldn't get to everyone and some people were stuck for 10-12 hours. (30 below!) Many abandoned their cars only to find themselves in white-out blizzard conditions, lucky to find their way back to their vehicles.
So. No whining here. Instead I'll link you to a song that never fails to lift my spirits even when they're already good, and makes me think of my Chicago days in the warmest way.
