Beating The Winter Blues




Every time of year has something. We are stuck with a calendar with only 365 days. This is when some people declare they are sick of winter. Sometimes we get a January Thaw. This year its arctic fronts.

One under recognized bonus in winter. Everyday gets brighter and longer. Its just over one month into snow season. X-mas and the holidays helped kick it off. Now is the time to figure out what's special about winter.

Check out the lakefront. Don't slide off the end of Farwell Pier. Or fall through a hole on its ice ridge. Take a picture of your favorite light display. Go see a movie, join a polar bear club, stick your tongue on a street pole (no really don't do that). Get ready for the Touhy Park bonfire next Tuesday, catch a show at the Mayne Stage, scan  the Chicago calendar of events for things to do. Being active will keep your mind off how cold and dark it is. You will find that winter is a pretty cool time of year.
