So this is the current weather notice for Cook Country from the National Weather Service:
I know it is not uncommon for the Chicago area to get snow well into March or even April. But truly, I am OVER IT.
I enjoy living in a part of the country that has all four seasons. While my favorites are spring and fall, I do appreciate the blazing hot days of August (for a bit) and the cold of December and January (within reason).
45° below zero windchills? Ugh. No, please.
2 feet of snow in one day? Keep it, Mother Nature.
I also know that other parts of the country (I'm talking about you, Boston) had a much harder winter, and my heart goes out to those who were stuck in snow deep enough to bury their cars. Weather suffering is relative. Some people love the kinds of weather I detest.
There is ONE good thing about spring snow in the Midwest, though.
It doesn't last long. On Wednesday, the high is expected to be in the upper 50s!
