A year ago today there was a massive blizzard. Snow was piled as high as me for weeks. It was kind of insane, as winters go. But today it felt more like April than February. And yesterday it was so warm, I almost didn’t need a coat. I’m not complaining or anything, but this weather is starting to scare me. Chicago doesn’t get weather like this in the middle of winter. But whatever tricks Mother Nature is trying to pull, I’m okay with it because it has me thinking about places like this.
