Visiting the Cold

We have been pretty lucky here in SF this winter, the cold hasn’t touched us. We have gotten some rain but nothing compared to the weather in the rest of the country. While I’m grateful for that, I’m visiting Chicago this week for work and I’m feeling a little lost in the packing department. Turns out, I’m completely unprepared for cold weather. It’s going to be 29 degrees and I’m worried I don’t have the right equipment (because I’m going on an expedition to the tundra, and who has those kind of layers). I guess I’ll just keep with the mantra ‘layer it up,’ and see how it goes!

I’ve never been to Chi Town before and my only goals (for my scant 36 hour visit) are to see The Bean, visit the Willis Tower Skydeck and eat stuffed pizza. I think I can make those things happen – wish me luck!
