doglover: Goimir: Chicago was founded by people from New York who said "We like the crime and the pollution, but it's just not COLD enough!"

And cholesterol.


And they brought with them a picture of a pizza, with no knowledge on how to make one. Thus Chicago Style Casserole was born.

Ikam: pivazena: Just moved to Chicago from North Carolina.  What the fark is this shiat?  What tiny bit of moisture exists in my apartment, after having these awful clanky LOUD drying radiators on, is frozen to the windows!  I have frosted glass!  i didn't even THINK about stepping outside today.  Maybe tomorrow, just to experience this stupidly cold city.  Pretty sure my car won't start.  There's salt stains all over my jeans and my floors.  AND I got a parking ticket the other day because I didn't move my car to the proper side of the street in a snow emergency?  How was I supposed to know it was a snow emergency?!  UUUUGGGGGHHHHHH

/okay seriously, I'm happy to be here and it's a good move, but JESUS way to roll out the welcome mat, upper midwest.

Chicago is a great place, really, just not so far this winter.  During some winters here, it is tempting to feel like the city and and nature are together involved in a massive and complex conspiracy to destroy whatever enjoyment you get out of life.  You can see this in the eyes of the commuters who huddle like chickens under the heat lamps on elevated platforms waiting for the delayed train.  Summer typically makes up for it and during the halcyon days of a summer festival, you forget about winter, and by the time you remember, it is too late, and you can't sublet your apartment because nobody wants it.  So the cycle repeats itself until you retire to Arizona.

marcre3363: Moved from Chicago last year. Still own a condo I'm renting there. Talked to the renters yesterday to remind them to keep the kitchen sink running so the pipes won't freeze.

Friend of mine posted a picture from this morning where he did the trick where he goes outside, pours boiling water into a bucket, throws it in the air and it turns into frozen "dust".

Meanwhile, I'm in sunny So Cal and debating taking the kids to the park when they get up from their naps.


Big deal.  Given the general state of California's economy, you'll be jobless and back in the Chi by this summer.
