Winter has descended upon Hyde Park and you know what? That’s okay.
Winter in Chicago is often bemoaned as a grim, terrible experience, consisting of bone-crunching cold, mountains of snow, and bleak and dreary days.
Well I’m here to tell you that it’s not as bad as it seems.
Yes Chicago is cold, yes there is snow, and yes, sometimes the sun goes away for awhile, but no, “grim” and “terrible” are not apt and never have been.
You see, a Chicago winter is as much a portrait of some crazy weather as it is an exercise in adaptation.
