Off to Chicago tomorrow.

Where it will be -25 degrees. -50 with the wind chill factor.

Minus. Fifty. Frickin'. Degrees.

Chicagoans are made of sterner stuff, but that's mighty cold even for us.
Well, either Chicago is losing it's famous hardiness or Swiss über caution reigns, but the flight was cancelled.

I was really looking forward to some epic Polar Vortex.

Why when I were a lad(ette), a little thing like life threatening cold never stopped us. No siree bob - Just pop a lightbulb under the hood so the car will start next morning, and keep on going. Quite literally - during the various Big Freezes of my youth, when driving we kept the engine running for fear it wouldn't start again, we became masters of jumping out of a slow rolling car. Ah those were the days.

Weirdly, Swiss has already cancelled my flight in two weeks time. Wonder what's going on over there...

Serious FWP - With the Swiss flight cancelled I'll have to fly through Frankfurt in February. Horrors.
