Right now a hurricane is battering the East Coast, but all is calm and lovely here in Chicago. We had a fun barbeque with friends last night and will potentially go to a picnic this afternoon. I must admit that I feel a little guilty that we have some of our nicest weather of the summer while East Coast friends get battered.
