WOW it is so colllllld in Chicago. This has got to be the coldest winter I've experienced in my entire life. It's currently 8ºF/-13ºC, which is actually not too bad compared to a couple of days ago when it was only -6º/-21ºC. I don't mind winter at all as long as I'm indoors, preferably under a blanket nice and toasty, with a cup of hot chocolate watching some good movie or making.......something.
My idea of fun in winter is going out and taking pictures of the first big snowfall of the year and that's about it. I don't like cold.
Actually I haven't enjoyed winter outdoors since my first introduction to snow in Holland. I was 12 years old when I woke up to my first winter wonderland on Christmas day....it was magical! I played outside all day long, even learned how to skate, but little did I know I was going to end up suffering from frost bites on my ears the rest of my life. Despite all that, I can't wait to try this tomorrow with my little girl. We're gonna have fun!
