Last month I moved to Chicago to pursue my big-time advertising dreams. Little did I know what I was in for – a few weeks later we were hit with the polar vortex. On Monday temperatures were as low as -40. Too cold for a polar bear! By Sunday night the shelves at Trader Joe’s were empty as people stocked up in preparation. Many businesses closed. Enter hibernation mode.
Just kidding. Hibernate? Please. If there’s one thing I’ve learned since moving, it is that Chicagoans know how to gear up for the weather. Here’s my winter weather wish list.
