Hibernation Begins

It was 7° degrees when I left for work today. Seven! And that doesn’t even take into consideration the windchill. That’s what’s really killer in this here Windy Center (obviously). And as luck would have it, I agreed to dog-sit this week… These are going to be some short walks, Morty!

Winter really does have a whole different vibe than the rest of the year in Chicago. The number of nights one goes out really plummets—which is good for my wallet and liver, so I’m ok with it. Besides, there’s plenty of projects to do around the apartment (again, obviously).

But to put it into perspective, I give you this awesome infographic from Liz Fosselin:

And while this one isn’t really weather related, I’ll throw it in just for good measure. Thinking about moving to Chicago? Here’s your neighborhood guide:
