Traveling From Minneapolis (-10°) to Chicago (0°)
Normally, Minnesotans heading to the airport in the depths of winter face a trade-off.
Option #1: wear their winter clothing and stay warm to and from the airport, but then be saddled with lots of extra clothes at their destination.
Option #2: travel light, but freeze to and from the airport.
(Once upon a time, pre-security concerns, airport storage lockers offered a third option).
Then there’s traveling to Chicago this weekend, as my wife and daughter are doing.
When you’re going from Minneapolis (windchill -25°) to Chicago (windchill -10°), there’s no such dilemma: you pack . . . everything!
P.S.: You know that expression, “out of the frying pan, into the fire?”
There really should be a cold-weather counterpart.
Like, “out of the freezer, and into the icebox.”
