It’s incredible what a difference a year makes. Last year at this time, Chicago was recovering from a massive blizzard. Today? Spring-like weather. So bizarre but I’ll take it! Snow after Christmas is so overrated.
Chicagoans love to talk about the weather to begin with but even a year after the blizzard, I can’t tell you how often it comes up in conversation. The thundersnow, LSD being shut down, where they were, how long it took to get home…I have discussed it all with everyone from the doorman to strangers in elevators. The Chicago Blizzard of 2011 will not soon be forgotten but fingers crossed that this unseasonably warm weather sticks around.
