Brrr doesn’t even begin to describe just how cold it is here in Chicago right now. On the way to lunch just now the car thermometer read 4° F as the air temp and it was well below zero with the wind gusts.
Whenever it gets this cold, it reminds of the Door County trip we took last December when it was that cold everyday (plus all the snow they were getting). In fact, it was a year ago this week. How time flies.
This photo was taken on one of our little excursions out into the cold, thanks to the great sunshine we had that let you believe it was warmer than it really way. We were trekking around Whitefish Dunes State Park and didn’t actually stay outside the car for more than 15 minutes or so. Since I practically grew up in a hockey rink, I have a better tolerance for the cold, but my lovely partner in crime has a different opinion.
All told, I think we stopped at 3-4 different places that day so that
we I could get out and take some photos. If you’d like to see more, you can revisit last year’s post about our December Door Country trip.
