Today my love of Chicago comes out in full force. The Chicago Blackhawks won the Stanley Cup and today is the parade and rally! Even though I have to work, I theoretically should be able to see the parade from my office which is awesome. The one downside to everything, the massive number of people coming downtown is severely making my day more difficult.
My mom also works downtown and takes a train from north of the city at 4am. 5:00 this morning she texted me and said they were half way to Chicago and her train was completely full…at FIVE AM! Well I can now confirm there is going to be wayyyyyy too many people downtown today and it should make for an interesting day. If I’m lucky enough to see the parade, I’m glad it’s from my non-crowded, air conditioned office.
