I miss last March

Maybe you recall that almost exactly a year ago, I posted this weather forecast for Chicago:


(It actually ended up being much warmer than that.)

And here’s the current 5-day forecast for Chicago:

I guess a lot can change in a year. Including the weather.com website design, apparently.

If you live in Chicago and are a true masochist, check out more posts here and here about the freakishly gorgeous weather we had a year ago, which I will now refer to as The Golden Age.


A walk in the park

These photos are of our walk in the park yesterday.

You know what else is a walk in the park? This weather we’ve been having! Amiright?? Somebody pinch me!

My hair was completely destroyed by the humidity this morning, but I’m not even mad – I’m impressed. It’s March!

Look at this weather.com forecast:

It was colder than this last year in June.

And did you notice that it’s going to be 71 degrees on Saturday? On St. Patrick’s Day? In Chicago?? Now that’s a recipe for mayhem if I ever saw one…

Weather.com helps us prepare for a zombie apocalypse

“[Zombies] move slower in the winter months, so out of necessity they eat less because it is harder for them to catch their prey. However, a zombie will never starve to the point of death, and when the spring comes they’ll be highly mobile and ravenous once again.”

Remember: in the event of a zombie apocalypse, knowledge is power.

Knowledge and a chain saw.


Dear Chicago Weather,

This five day forecast is amazeballs. If you’re doing this to make up for your undeniable crappiness last week, I accept. Just throw in a light and variable breeze and all will be forgotten.

Love,                                                                                                                                                                                                                             Carlie

P.S. If the great weather now is due to the fact that you feel guilty about the awful winter we’re about to have, I take back all the nice things I’ve ever said about you. Jerk.

P.P.S. Thank you for providing the proper context for me to use the word “amazeballs” for the first time in my life.
