thursday as i was walking home from bart, the sunshine of the day very quickly gave way to a heavy fog, the first one we'd had in a while. call me crazy but on nights like this, when a thick and heavy fog steamrolls across the city, i feel very lucky to live here. yeah, i love a sunny day, but there's something darkly romantic about the fog, and when it blankets what's arguably the most beautiful city in the country, well...i may shiver a bit from the chill wind, but it's worth it for the way it adds an extra something to my step.
that said, the weather i'm facing this week in chicago is seriously cold. colder than what a foggy night in san francisco will bring. cold as in snow was falling early this morning. cold as in my plan to go to the cubs game on wednesday ain' gonna happen if it means sitting for 2-3 hours in 40-degree weather.
