- Fizzy Thoughts: Baby, it's cold outside

Baby, it's cold outside

It's official, we're in Packer Country. In fact, that was the first thing we saw when we walked into the airport. A banner that said, "Welcome to Packer Country." It really is all about the football. Our taxi driver said, "You here for the game?"

Amazingly, all of our flights were on time. Especially since this is what Chicago looked like:

Yes, that's snow. See:
We walked through it to get to our plane. With no warning, they announced boarding, took our tickets, and sent us through a door, down some stairs, and out into snow. Okay, so the stuff on the ground was pretty much melted. But there was more falling from the sky. And it wasn't a short walk. By the time I got to the plane it was snowing in my ear. Seriously...the wind was blowing little fluffy flakes into my ear while I was waiting to get on the plane. There's a sentence I never thought I would type.

After our plane was de-iced and coated with a gooey green anti-freeze (that is only good for 20 minutes, how comforting is that??) we taxied through the snow. Luckily we were able to launch within our 20 minute window and before you know it we were in Green Bay.

And here we are. Holed up in the hotel room. It's not currently snowing, but here's more evidence that it has been:

Not very exciting pictures, but that's because I took them from the balcony of our room. We'll venture out later, when it warms up. To the expected high of 26 degrees.

In a real sense, people who have read good literature have lived more than people who cannot or will not read. It is not true that we have only one life to live; if we can read, we can live as many more lives and as many kinds of lives as we wish. ~S.I. Hayakawa

The World is a book, and those who do not travel read only a page.
~St. Augustine

Travel is fatal to prejudice, bigotry, and narrow-mindedness.
~Mark Twain
