The Windy City isn't called that because of the weather, it's because the politicians back in the day were mouthy buggers, so the reporters in New York called them windbags and Chicago became the Windy City.  If it was based on the weather it would be nicknamed the Holy shit it's cold! City.  A foot of snow fell last night, and covered everything in a beautiful white blanket of ovary-punching, frozen water.  The cold isn't the worst part of it all, it's the slush that really gets on my tits.  I discovered the hard way that my boots aren't waterproof, and the salt that's put down on the roads corrodes everything it touches.  And I really should've brought a coat.

I'm staying with my adoped sister, Elly, who's at college here.  I haven't really done much touristy stuff except go to the Aquarium, which was ok but nothing to write home about. For the moment, I'm just crashing with El, hanging out with her and her room-mate Kit and wondering how much longer I can go before I have to wash my clothes.  I think I can get another 2 days before the smell makes people vomit.
