Photos: Another day in Chicago’s polar vortex

SHARE Photos: Another day in Chicago’s polar vortex

I was outside for 10 minutes before my eyebrows started freezing!

Like a kid the night before the first day of school, I actually laid out my layers before setting my alarm clock for 5AM.

Was I actually excited about experiencing my second bout of -13 degree weather? Heck, Yes!

Socks. Long Johns. Running Pants. Snow Pants. Long Sleeve Shirt. Sweat Shirt. Winter Coat. 2 pairs of gloves. Hat. Gloves. Ski mask. Infinity scarf.

It’s nearly impossible to move but the lake is magical and beautiful, maybe more so when it’s below zero.

Not tropical island, toes in the sand, give me a fruity drink … beautiful, but the kind of beauty that is rare and makes your jaw drop.

It’s mother nature’s show, Chiberia.

Want to see more photos from the Sun-Times: Monday’s dip into the deep freeze.

Remember the first polar vortex?
