Welcome Break in the Weather!

Can you BELIEVE how cold it was the last two days?? It was in the 20s-30s in Chicago, after being in the 40s-60s for WEEKS! Two days of bitter bitter cold and blustery blustery wind. It was HORRIBLE! I was NOT happy, and neither was Rev. We had to warm ourselves with tea and Licor 43 - a lovely, sweet Spanish vanilla liquer. YUM! Shannon was, of course, in his element being from Maine. He spent the last two days walking around in shorts and swimmers drinking icy-cold pina coladas.

Don't ask what he was wearing when it was warmer.

The weather hit the thirties just when a report was released saying that 2006 was the warmest year EVER in the history of the Earth. Some are saying El Nino played a role. I really don't know how that could be since Chris Farley has been dead since late '97.

When it actually DOES get warmer, Rev, we can make our own Key Lime Martinis from whatever Licor 43 you have left!

From the 43 I have left? They'll make more. The more of it I drink, the more they'll make.

Mmmmm. That Key Lime Martini sounds great.

Shannon said...

Since when is weather in the 30's in Chicago in January COLD? Sounds just 'bout right to me.

Where's my thong?

Shannon said...

For the record, it is currently 44 degrees in Chicago - FIFTEEN degrees above normal.

Cold! PFAH!

In 1977, they saw a low of -11. THAT is cold.

Where's my fur thong?

I'm totally hiding the cats.

Rev Transit said...

Yeah, 44 degrees for January isn't bad. Only 28 more degrees to go for perfect January weather.

Jo, I'm betting the cats will share Shannon's idea of perfect weather. That's the price you pay when you get cats from Maine.

Minnie is running around the house for no reason again.
