Assuming it made national news, you may have heard we had some seriously scary weather (as in snow showers on Halloween) in Chicago. This is what Lake Michigan looked like which prompted the close of Lakeshore drive. We were trick or treating a few blocks from here and managed to get a glimpse of the waves crashing almost to the street.

The sleet and rain stopped temporarily and we managed to sneak in an hour of trick or treating before getting caught in a wind tunnel. That’s when we called it a year and headed home. The girls didn’t seem to notice or care (other than being a little cold). It was the first time in several years that I opted not to dress up which was a bummer because I was all ready to channel my inner Piper from Orange is the New Black. My brand new orange jumpsuit sadly stayed home.
