Following up from Sarah’s post

What do I love about Chicago weather that I probably shouldn’t? The fact that I can go from running around in 65 degree weather like a convict who hasn’t seen sunlight in 40 years to bundling up for snow flurries IN LESS THAN 24 HOURS.

Listen, snow, I thought we had a deal. I thought you were all done. Your ass is grass when I catch you. No good deal-breaker.

    god, tell me about it. i was all geared up for biking around the city again, fixed the slow leak in my back tire and realigned the brakes, and then bam! lisa labuz says this morning we have a wind chill of FIVE. *sniff* i’m not sure i even remember what spring is like anymore….

    What is this “spring” ?

    I am unaware of this concept you speak of. I did some research and found that this word “spring” comes from the word “springan” which means “to leap, burst forth, fly up”, and later in 1547 to mean “season following winter”

    But I am still unclear. Are you suggesting it is supposed to get warm? I don’t remember what that is like.

    No no, it’s not that it won’t get warm, it’s that Chicago doesn’t have a “spring.” Don’t worry, after all of the cold we’re in for 90F with 158% humidity. That’s not exactly “warm” though…
