A Saturday Supplement

As long as I posted Thursday's thanksgiving post on Friday, I figured that I'd post a Saturday supplement to it this morning. I suppose it's kind of a kidding/not kidding kind of thanksgiving but I'm definitely saying that I am thankful that I don't live in Chicago!

I love visiting the kids here but prefer to visit them during the summer months.
Why?
Because it is cold and snowing -- and it is not even winter, yet!

It was snowing last night from about 8 o'clock and was still snowing at past 1am when I went to bed. There were still a few flurries coming down when I woke up this morning, but it has now stopped.
And it is cold.
My phone tells me the current temp is 34F (or just above freezing for my Celsius friends) and that is the expected high temp for the day. Tomorrow's high is forecast to be 26F (-3.3C) with tonight's low at 14F (-10)!
YUCK!

I know that there are many of you that love the snow and don't mind the cold. Great! You can have it. I am grateful that Southern Missouri doesn't get the snow and cold of a Chicago winter (although I understand that there is also light snow in Ozark this morning).

In a rather self-serving kind of way, I don't think I'll mind if we have a snowy winter in the Ozarks this year. I don't have to be out in the bad weather as far as driving goes. I can walk in the snow. And every time I hear Chris say, "I hate winter," I can suggest that we move to a beach in Mexico!

Have a great weekend!

When I saw the weather report about the storm sweeping across the upper midwest I thought of you in Chicago. And that you should leave yesterday.

Winter in Chicago? Brrrr! Chicago is nice in the late spring!

Chicago has three seasons, Angel -- winter, late spring, autumn -- then winter.
