Why do I live somewhere that is so cold?

<> on January 7, 2015 in Chicago, Illinois.

This is a question I have been asking myself a lot lately.  You see here in good ol’ Chicago the temperatures have been hovering around a solid 3 degrees. Which means that the “feels like” temperature is usually in the negative degrees.  While we’re on the subject, let’s talk about another question I do not have an answer to.

What is the point of the “feels like” temperature?  I do not need to know the actual temperature.  If the temperature says 14 degrees but the feels like temperature is -9 degrees then what really is the temperature?  Please get rid of the feels like temperature and when I open my weather app just tell me how cold I will be when I walk outside. This is something that has driven me insane the past couple years and I needed to get that off my chest.  Thank you for listening.

Back to the point of this post, why is it so god damn cold in Chicago?  Now I have always been a fan of season, I enjoy it not being the same temperature all the time.  I have always been one that enjoys being kept on their toes. Well let me tell ya, the weather in Chicago surely does that.

Do not get me wrong, Chicago summers make Chicago winters worth it every single year. It could be negative 15 degrees with a feels like temperature of -34 degrees all winter long.  Chicago summers are ALWAYS worth it. Let’s take our minds to a much warmer time to close this all out, summer is only 134 days way. 134 days, thats just over 19 weeks. 19 weeks isn’t a long time right?
