Growing up in Oklahoma, I'd always heard about Chicago being the so called 'Windy City'. Walking the half mile to school everyday in the Sooner State, I thought Chicagoans must be some of the toughest people on the planet. The national media seems to always talk about, and show the world how brutal the winter wind can be up there. Showing pictures and videos of people walking down the streets, papers swirling around the corners of buildings, and snow piling up into huge drifts.
As I grow older, I can't help but think "Well isn't that cute."
