Apparently it wasn’t enough that last month Chicago had a record snowfall during Super Bowl weekend. Today (and tomorrow), the city is going to hit a new all-time high.! Or should I say low. Temperatures are currently at 3 degrees Fahrenheit with the wind chill making it feel like 20 to 30 degrees below zero.!! Deep sigh… Tomorrow’s high..low I mean…will be around 2 degrees not counting the wind chill. I’m wearing about 4 to 5 layers of clothing depending on what part of my body you’re talking about.!

But back in Mexico, my lovely friends J. and C. went to Isla Holbox or Holbox Island. It’s 75 degrees Fahrenheit in Holbox and they are wearing bathing suits.!! I’m not sure that even counts as one layer of clothing.!?! But I don’t hate them. Really I don’t. I’m just going to cuddle on the sofa with my blanket, some green tea, and my soup. All the while thinking warm thoughts as I gaze at their photos. It will be spring soon, I tell myself. It’s just around the corner….
