I used to live in Chicago, and remember a lot of snow. after 7 years in Alaska while in the service we moved to Arizona when I got out. Love the change we go to the Mountains when we want to play in the snow. The dogs love it and its fun for a few hours then back home to sit outside and injoy the 70s.
From what I remember, just hang around and it should change. Check out the Pond Piggies in the Regional chapters , North Central Region Here
