We had some major snow in Chicago, which resulted in TWO WHOLE SNOW DAYS! I didn't have to go to work OR class! It was awesome. I lay around and read, went to a bar in the middle of the blizzard (and post-blizzard), took a walk around the block to observe the neighborly helping-out, ate chili, and sat in the window to watch cars struggle in the unplowed streets.
On the second snow day, it was clear and beautiful but still the roads were not clear. I had never had a snow day here in Chicago before, and two in a row? Words cannot describe how happy I was.
It was so bright and clear as I made my way home, on Chinese New Year, no less!
