Springtime in Chicagoland...

is the personification of "hope springs eternal". We emerge from our hovels, eyes squinting against that strange yellow orb in the sky (what is that thing? Oh yeah - the Sun), shocked that we can leave the big coats and ice scrapers behind.

I always hear about how great Spring is in NY, and I'm sure it's great...But since I'm a fervent believer that Chicago is inherently better than anyplace else, I will dare say that This is the best place to be during this time of year...The air seems fresher (yep, smog can seem better than the air in your house when you haven't opened a window since October), the people prettier (natch), the storms more exciting...the whole vibe seems happier (Hey - We even have open and blind hope for all of our sports teams to win their respective championships). This will last in all it's glory for about a couple of weeks until the worst season of all rears its ugly head - Construction.

So for all of you local people out there who know what I'm talking about, get a big smile on your face and enjoy this briefly joyful time of year...It's sure better than snowstorms in late February.

Here's to everyone finding that someone special!
