Off to Chicago!
I know there are some members that live there and are used to the weather... but coming from Miami and looking at weather.com forecast it doesn't look like this is going to work out well for me
But hey, at least I will get to see some snow and then leave in a week

I have a new found respect for winter which will probably grow stronger after these -30 wind chills the next couple days. This will be the coldest temps I've ever been in.

I lived in the Irving Park/Wrigleyville area for about 5 years. If you are a fan of grasy food, try Byron's on Irving Park and Sheffield. Delicious.
I've have a few friends from Miami that have been up here for a few Bears games. Needless to say they echo what you say about winter in Chicago. That and they are never coming back!

Ahhh Chicago in the winter. Having lived all over downtown Chicago for about 15 years I remember those cold days well. Especially when I used to walk to work 15 minutes each morning. As we always said..."It's not bad weather, just the wrong clothes".
Chicago is such a great city though 8 months of the year that if it wasn't for the winter it would be too crowded.
Just wanted to follow up on this thread
I got back to Miami about a week ago and the night after I got back we hit the mid 30s for lows and had some frost on the roof of my car... I know WTF right!?!
Anyway, haven't had to turn the AC on since that day, but finally warming up today to the upper 70s...enough to flip the AC on. Oh, and tomorrow we should be hitting 80F!!!
So just like to say I feel your guys pain now although actually enjoyed the experience of freezing my *** off...for a week.
Here are some pics...from left to right.
1) Keeping beer and ice outside, a new experience for me but when it's 10F out, it works pretty well
2) Standing in the middle of a frozen lake, yeah, it was dumb, but didn't hang out there for very long.
3) Me "sledding" on a seat cushion thing you would take to a football game
4) Lake again while the snow was falling pretty hard
5) My car back in Miami, yes, that's ice
