Dear Mother Nature

Dear Mother Nature,

You and I need to have a little chat.  I have quite a December planned.  You almost messed it up for me in Chicago.  Now what the hey??  You have all winter to flex your muscles, can't you just take a Bahamian holiday until after 1/1/2011?

First we had a chilly rain....

Then it turned to ice....
And, although Chicago is beautiful any time of the year, I would have placed an order for crisp days and starry nights, got it?

Then the snow came...

As if that wasn't enough, you had to show us your lung power and blow the livin' crap out of Lake Michigan.  I mean to tell you lady, the waves were hitting the car as we drove on Lake Shore Drive.  Now really, was that necessary?

And air travel?  Well, now wasn't that just wishful thinking? Might as well cover up under the down comforter and watch chick flicks!

But no can do.  I've got places to go, people to see, things to do!
So little lady, you take your "vacay" and let me take mine and we will all get along famously.  Really!

Yours truly,
