We are off on vacation for a few days.
Somewhere hot and exotic you wonder ? Not a chance. We are going to Chicago which is currently 18 degrees and looks like this.....
On top of this there is a winter storm warning in effect which is forecasting accumulations of from 12 to 14 inches of snow.
Oh joy !
So far today over 200 flights have been canceled so hopefully we will actually get there without too much trouble.
Now I could tell you that Mick is flying me away for a romantic Valentines day weekend....but the truth is there is a band playing there that he really wants to see :-)
Yes we are flying 1731 miles to see a band. Not quite as exciting as when we drove from Minnesota to New York to see them...in December...that was cold as well.
(Note to self...email band and beg them to start playing the SW)
Anyhow, we decided to make a long weekend out of it though and take in the sights.
At the moment the Miniature White House is on display at the Museum of Science and Industry alongside Coleen Moore's fairy Castle.
We actually saw the fairy castle last time we were in Chicago (yes seeing the same band) and the White House is actually coming to California shortly so we might wait till it comes here.
Hopefully I will get a chance to visit the Thorne Miniature Rooms though.
So, until next week, toodle pip.
