Okay, bad pun after yesterday's Super Bowl. But the weather in Chicago really is unbearable. Most of our street people seem to be in "warming shelters" at least for now, though a few are out and about. Today it may have hit a high of 5 (it started out at -6). Our elevator stopped working yesterday morning (-10). It usually gives us trouble in the winter, but the problem is generally limited to when the elevator has been on an upper floor for a while. The grease on the cable freezes and when you hit "down," you get this start-and-stop jerking ride down to the basement, where everything resets. But now the elevator can't even get out of the basement. So we are getting a lot of exercise. The elevator company is getting calls from all over the city. Thanks be to God we are only in a four-storey building!
I hear we are in for a few more days of this extreme weather, and then it should warm way up to 30. Can't wait.
