I don’t know if you know this, but it’s January in Chicago.

To me, January has always been the Ice Month.

December and February are the Snow Months.

March is a crapshoot. It could be any or all of the above.

But January, with its bone-chilling temperatures brings with it icy sidewalks and streets, and a lake that tries very hard to be the world’s largest ice skating rink.

    January here in Minneapolis is just the same. We woke up to three inches of snow this morning and icy, slippery, skating rink roads. Just keep thinking about the three reasons why we live in these cities: June, July, and August.

      I’m going to throw September and October into the mix as well, at least in Chicago, because they are still lovely and October (almost always) has lovely color.

      And I don’t mind the cold so much as I mind when it all turns to gray icy slush and gets salt all over my damn jeans.
