Chicagos winter is great! If you cant hack it maybe you belong in LA or Florida. Wimp :)

Seriously though, the winters here are wimpy now. Back in the kate 70`s and early 80`s were Chicagos real winters and they were Awesome.-70 windchills,-15,-20 daytime highs, snow measured in feet. Ahhhhhhh the good old days.

Once again it will hit 70, then somehow drop 50 degrees overnight and probably f***ing snow. Fun!

The Global Warming Leemings are now calling it Climate Change. This way all of those do nothing academics get federal grants to study something that the private sector would never pay them to do.

How's that War on Science going? Rush tells you to like mercury in his tuna and you wave the flag for him. And he's eating caviar and blue pills for dinner with his boyfriends.
