To ring in the frigid temperatures in Chicago, I thought I’d post this photo from a time when I really couldn’t escape the cold.
I was in college in Hong Kong and felt sorry for myself for the two weeks when the temperatures plummeted to 6C, or 42F.
But then I went to China and really lost it. The temps were more like 2C or 35F, just above freezing.
A college sweatshirt and trench coat didn’t exactly do the trick. We had no heat inside, so kept our coats on inside and out.
The only relief came at night thanks to the electric blankets on the beds.
Since then I’ve had a fear of the cold. Tell me again why I live in Chicago?
