I tried sledding, skiing plus ice skating.
Living down south means that I had never gotten to experience snow before! For years I would do Christmas in shorts or hanging out by the pool. Christmas trees were small plus fancy, it was hard to get in the spirit when I would get a sunburn hanging up lights. I also didn’t entirely get the cold weather when I watched holiday movies; Since I work from beach house I can live anywhere. I decided that for the month of January I would live anywhere cold. I easily wanted to experience snow plus all that comes with it. I found a cute little long term rental in Glenview IL. I liked that it was in a rural section so it was cheaper plus safer, however, an hour away I could go into Chicago. I could see a hockey game, a show or just love the nightlife. I didn’t go to Chicago as much as I thought though, and glenview offered enough fun for me. I entirely just tried to love the snow. So it is cold plus wet. I expected that but not how drastic it was. I was so thankful our rental came with radiant flooring. I suppose I would have died without proper heating, but the cold sits in your bones plus lingers there. It makes your joints ache plus your nose to run. I tried sledding, skiing plus ice skating. I tried making a snowman plus snowball fights. The snow just didn’t entirely do it for me. It was fun getting a tree plus decorating our beach house around the snow but. I wouldn’t want to live in Glenview forever, but it was a nice visit.
