You call this snow?? All day yesterday and again last night the local weather service issued severe winter storm warnings. Flights into and out of Chicago were cancelled, salt trucks were on alert, motorists were warned of dismal weather, dangerous driving conditions. I figured I'd be snowbound all day and quickly changed my plans and decided to stay home and make cookies today, while the weather outside was frightful. It was raining when I went to bed and I hoped and dreamed there'd be a Winter Wonderland outside my window in the morning. This is what I woke up to:
That's all for the snow? Not exactly the Winter Wonderland I had hoped for. What's the point of living in Chicago if you can't get some decent extreme weather once in awhile? Iowa, Wisconsin and Michigan were hit with a foot of snow . Chicago? Nada.
Even the dog was disappointed. I told her about the storm ahead of time and mentioned that puppy school would probably be cancelled (Snow Day!). Both of us were excited about the prospect of playing in the backyard in the snow for a bit. Oh well . . . .
Christmas isn't here yet so I won't give up hope - maybe my Winter Wonderland will appear on Monday.
