Windy City

I've been offline for several days. I'm in Chicago for at least a week as my daughter had surgery on Monday. She's home now and I'll be "nursing" her for awhile. She's doing great and recuperating quickly.

This is the first time I've been up here in the winter - ooh is it cold! Yesterday was -25 to -30 degrees (yes, that's a minus) with the wind chill. And I was walking to the bus stop! You can't believe how people dress here - hats, gloves, scarves up over noses, boots, heavy coats. It's hard to move when you have that much on! It makes for a high degree of anoniminity when all you see is two eyes! But even then, it's cold!

I'll be home in Texas next Tuesday. If it warms up any, I will try to post some Chicago photos.
