The bitter cold is starting to set in. I think we crested 14 today, but that's as high as the temperature is going to get until Tuesday or so. This kind of prolonged frigidity has been rare since I've been in Chicago. It's not the worst thing in the world.
My car is freshly antifreezed (Antifrozen?) and has plenty of gas in the tank, but just taking it around the block was sluggish and awkward. It was like getting a piggy-back ride from an arthritic, complaining old dude... with leather seats.
Still, the car's out front and ready to roll, because I have to be in Naperville at 8:30am. Gross.
Cool picture, though, huh? That was snapped from the Michigan Ave bridge earlier today.
