White like heaven

BLIZZARD! This is why I moved to the Midwest in 1993. Oh, yeah.

I experienced my first blizzard in Ithaca, New York in 1993. It was great. My second was here in Chicago in 1999, but by coincidence I was very ill and spent the whole time in bed. This is my first exciting snowstorm of the new century. I would have been disappointed if this one had passed us by.

I've stocked up on food and my company gave us the day off work tomorrow. I've got my Kindle plus a paper book, so I'm ready for a day of staying inside. I love staying inside. I love winter.

I know, don't envy me too much. But I do feel sorry for any Chicagoans who are out of town for the week and are missing all this.

I envy you, I envy your snow storm and inside weather and cold frosted days that force us to stock up on food and find a good book!
