C'mon Chicago, its not that bad out there! Throw on an extra layer, slather on the chapstick, and go!
Trains were only a quarter full, schools are closed for the day, only because of a little cold.
It is a slippery slope. The next thing you know, you'll be like Washington DC, shutting down the city every time there is a couple inches of snow.
That said, my back is still sore from snow shoveling yesterday. Glad to live in a neighborhood where everyone does their walk, and those of the elderly and infirm.
