5 and lo! there came the weekend weather from heaven


in chicago, there's winter and then there's construction. it's 12 below for freaking ever then suddenly you look up and you're at pitchfork and the temperature's a 102 with a heat index of 704. this is chicago. this is not why we love it.

but this weekend was something else. the wind gave us a break. the snow has melted. the sun was out. the cubs were in town. and i think we maybe had ourselves a little spring.

here's hoping i didn't jinx it by packing up my winter clothes...

Deep, deep, seething jealousy. Right now roanoke = shit ton of drear.

that, a shit ton of drear, needs to at the absolute very least be a chapter in someone's autobiography.

Mm, we hit 74 yesterday. It's been beautiful.

curiously enough, Oline, the weather here, about 14 blocks south of you, has been remarkably similar.

we're at 60 and sunny today, so yay us. (naturally the sun comes out on the day I start working again!)
