How You Know Spring Has Sprung In Chicago

People ask us how we can live in such a cold, dreary place. The answer? Spring.

Posted on

If you live in Chicago, you spend the entire winter plotting your escape. You ask yourself why don’t I just move to San Diego? There is no way you’re going to spend another year in this hellish tundra.

But wait! Just when you give up all hope, you realize Spring is here. Everyone in Chicago lets out a collective sigh of relief. Why, you ask? There is no equal to Chicago in spring. Pure. Unadulterated. Joy.

You run into people you know walking along the street and it’s like running into your long lost relative. You both talk about how miserable the winter was and how amazing the weather is today.

Armed with volleyballs and plenty of sunscreen to protect the pale skin you got this winter, swarms of people head to the beach. You claim your spot early and watch out for teenagers.
