I had a work conference so I rolled into Chi-Town for a few days. I’ve never actually been to Chicago only spent countless hours in O’Hare. Chicago was much more interesting than I thought. I have quite a few friends from Chicago who have been pretty adamant on how awesome the city is.
When I rolled into town it was really cold and snowy. The weather warmed up over the next few days but when we left it had once again gotten cold. I would love to come back to town in the early summer.
The photo below was taken around midnight central time after hours of traveling from Portland to Chicago.
I finally got some authentic deep dish from Lou Malnati’s. It was good. I mean really good.
For our company’s services award dinner, we went to the Field Museum which was so cool!
And my team won an award for “Program of the Year”
The ‘L’ is such an interesting way to get around.
The squirrels are smarter than we gave them credit for. They have found out how to get up to the bird feeder.
Today I got out for a short run in the snow. It made me feel much better. It’s not just running that makes me feel better. It’s being outside. Otherwise I would just get a treadmill.

There is a kitty in here. I promise.
Here he is!
It started snowing on Thursday. Andy and I had taken Friday off from work so we could go to the coast for a mini vacation. However the weather prevented us from leaving. It’s Saturday and it’s still snowing. Portland seems to be doing a bit better than the last big storm in 2008.
