Chicago ..nah nah nah ...yeah yeah ...






This winter is bringing one of the worst wind chill to the area here, I have seen so far -25'F for couple of days, things were really crazy due to bad weather, whether its train services or ped ways to walk. I can't imagine standing for more than 10-15 min outside , however i have seen workers doing their job whose job is to work outdoors, kudos to them. Michigan lake was freezing but still Chicago 's business was as usual, that's the spirit of govt side and all daily professional workers.

Every year we say why we are here, the weather is always so bad in this Windy city but you know what this is my 4th winter and still i like the city and suburbs. for kids all these wintry chilled months are tough as they have to just remain indoor for around 5-6 months, there is no outdoor activity, no friends, no neighbours...they are all alone ...but yeah then can enjoy skiing, sledging but how long , how frequent ? visit http://chicagofun.com/winterfunguide2003.html for more details.

If you are calling your parents, plan them in the summers from June to Sep otherwise they are going to suffer ... no joy for them outside these months.

On a recent Saturday morning, as the city sat beneath a foot of fresh snow, people strolled in Millennium Park, the city’s front yard along Lake Michigan, even as three snowplows scraped circles around them. Still, without violating the city’s code of stoicism, one can find the ideal winter day here by alternating all that outdoor grit with a smattering of permitted hideaways.
