I would like to, on behalf of the design boner team, thank the Chicago weather gods for finally giving us a break with the weather.
Being two girls without cars and long commutes, we are constantly waiting and walking and waiting, outside. The weeks-in-a-row of negative temperatures were beginning to weigh on our spirits, not to mention our sinuses. And, as far as productivity goes, it's hard to get to the laundry or clean up that bathroom when all you want to do is mainline hot soup while snuggled up on the couch.
Yet the past two days have required no frostbite precautions. It makes walking to the store for eggs (and a decent "7" pic) an absolutely inspiring excursion.
