Home for the holidays

Home is not Hawaii or anywhere else that's really warm....
It's Chicago.
So, don't be envious of my holidays away from Saluda.
I don't even know if I have enough warm clothes to
deal with this anymore.

Don't you just love the way the AT&T Cloud looks with snow?
There is something to be said about seeing all
these wondrous, white, powdery flakes ... from afar.
Up close and personal - it's cold & wet & blustery & freezing.
It's only 6 above here today, with
wind chills of -20.

There must be some indoor activities somewhere in
this big big city.
Shopping anyone?
Eating Chicago Pizza at, let's say Lou Malnottis?

How about watching the Chicago Bears football
at a sports bar, just like the olden days?
Warming up with some irish coffee?
Now you can get envious. GO BEARS!


  1. oh my gosh! i love chicago, it is one of my fav places on earth!! portillos chi-town hot dogs...yummo!!

  2. Yeah, there are alot of great things about this city, even in the winter. The Drake Hotel was incredible. Spent 3 days in Columbus,OH and went to North Market for the xmas foodie thing. Cherry Pies were yummmmy.
