Chicago has had more than its share of national news datelines lately, thanks to Barack Obama, Rod Blagojevich, and Arne Duncan. But I won’t be covering any of that. For the next few days, I’ll be taking a break from the news and spending time with my family and friends while trying to stay warm in this beautiful, snowy tundra where I grew up.
It was a balmy 30 degrees today — it “warmed up to freezing,” as my dad put it — but that won’t last for long!
I hope you all have a wonderful holiday.
