'After the Snow'. 5 x 7. Pastel
I love the name. Polar Vortex. It's sounds like something interesting to read about. I am not just reading about it though. I am in the middle of it here in Chicago. I was supposed to fly home this afternoon. I had a great visit but I have a lot to do. My pastel classes were set to begin on Tuesday.
We woke up to the bone chilling temperature of -19 with windchills in the -40s. But our flight was on schedule so we made our way to the airport. Then the delays began. After the flight time was pushed up the third time I knew we needed to prepare for the 'c' word.....cancelled ! And it was. Our rescheduled flight is in the morning but I am not too hopeful. Conditions won't be any better. We were told that the planes can't refuel because the fuel lines are freezing.
So we are making the best of it. We got a room at the airport since the flight is so early. We took a cab to Target to buy pajamas ( our luggage had been checked which I don't usually do). We treated ourselves to room service and I decided to paint our view of the frozen parking lot.
