OMG! Folks what the heck is going on now? Ok, in Chicago we have had some really early winter stuff happening. It's winter in Chitown and so no big deal, right. Meterologist love Chicago because we have real weather here. But this is ridiculous.
We had a huge snow storm followed closely by a huge ICE storm followed by mo snow and Friday got a massive ice blanket covering everything. EVERTHING! We held on to the trees and bushes and each other and anything we could grasp to stay upright.
Cars were stuck in parking spaces and spinning out all over town yesterday morning.
Then during the day the temps started going up. Water from the melting snow made the ice underneath more treacherous.
People had to walk in the streets, so cars and peeps spent the day dodging each other.
Also the melting ice and snow and the sudden warm air combo created an unbelievable fog. Zero visibility. We expected to see wolfman emerge from around some bush.
Walking back from our friends house last night holding on to each other in the ice and fog, we looked like a couple of 80 year olds. I told Monica we were rehearsing for our old age. She said, "rehearsing? This is act one, honey."
Now today, (Saturday morning) it will be near 60 degrees. I just looked outside and the snow and ice are GONE! It's gone. I see grass. And it's raining. Thunderstorms, right now. And, so now the flooding begins. And don't even think of leaving here because all modes of transportaion here are in a constant state of "delayed" and "cancelled".
On Christmas morning it was 8 degrees and now it's springtime. What is going on?
So if you are coming to Chicago, bring your heavy winter gear and boots, an umbrella, a spring jacket, fog glasses, and a raft, and carry them all at the same time.
