I'm Off to the Windy City
It's that time of the year - Plan Season - when I head off to Chicago for our annual plan meeting. It worked out that I also needed to be here for a Leadership Development meeting, so I'm actually here for the entire week. I already miss Melon Man and Dog...even the little dogs too. I hope the week will go fast. I slept almost the entire way here. I guess I really needed it!
It's incredibly humid here right now. I began melting the moment I stepped off the plane. There is just something about the humidity here. It's so wet. I actually hoped I wouldn't be affected by it, but there was no escaping it. I dread going outside because I know I'll quickly start pouring forth water from my body like it's air.
I do love this city though. It's so beautiful...both downtown and out here in the burbs. I love the forest preserves. I love Lake Michigan. I love all the trees. I love the many different cultures. I love the food. I just love it. But...I hate the humidity! If there was no humidity, I could probably stand to live here all year. I guess that's also why they have such wet winters here too.
Take a look at this picture...this is what makes me love this city so much too...so beautiful! Hmmm....humidity and tornados though....makes me question my love for Chi-town and if I could really live here....
