Today marks the official first day that it is truly cold outside. Forecasters are predicting this to be the worst winter in Chicago history, and for anyone who has braved a Chi-town winter, ah damn. Wouldn't it be nice if we could live in little cottages with brick fireplaces? Wear wooly striped socks and cuddle up in oversized knit sweaters? There's something romantic about hibernating in the winter. I secretly love it!
