Chicago, January 21

I have lived more of my life in The Greater Chicago Metropolitan Area than any other place on earth. You would think I would be inured to the mid-winter weather.

I am not. I AM NOT INURED!

Today it rained, all day. Thirty-three fucking degrees on the thermometer, and constant rain. The only thing grayer than the sky were the filthy scraps of snow clinging to the side of the road. I spent the day longing for night, just so that the world would have good excuse for being so damn dark.

Holy crap but it was an ugly, ugly day in America’s heartland.
