If a person asked me what it was like to live through a Chicago winter, I would probably explain it like this. Remember in one of the Batman movies, (Filmed in Chicago) Mr. Freeze would come into a scene and just freeze everything in sight? It's kind of like that! It goes on like this for months. You are pretty much a prisoner in your own home durring these winter months, unless that is you want your face to freeze while you walk to the subway and go out.
I'm not the only one that shares this opinion. I have had the pleasure of talking with many other Chicago residents that have said they are soon on the way out too. From everywhere to North Carolina to Texas or like me, back to California. Hell, even Mr. Freeze himself got tired of the cold Chicago winters and moved back to California. He even became the Governor of the State! Well wishes to all and lets hope for an early spring.
