Here's a look at the last Blizzard to hit Chicago.

You'll be fine. Just wrap up warm and don't spend too much unnecessary time outdoors.. not like us. We went to see the Bears against the Patriots at Soldierfield on one of the most bitterly cold, snowy days in December. We quite literally lost all feelings in our hands and feet. I just couldn't wait for the game to end. Sad, really.

Never actually made it to see the hawks. I did see the Bulls a few times and they were excellent.

Ah, i shall miss those teams. Not sure there is all that much to route for here in Louisville. The Cardinals, I believe. Don't even know what sport they play, but it's probably baseball... and I HATE baseball.

It's all basketball here. College basketball. You either support UK (University of Kentucky) or U of L (University of Louisville) UK is blue and U of L is red (Cardinals).

There's a minor league baseball team as well. Closest Pro sports are Indy or Cinci. Maybe Nashville.

If you have some property to take care of, sidewalks or driveways etc., buy a decent snowblower when they go on sale. Otherwise, they sell out rather quickly when the defacation hits the rotary oscillator, weatherwise.

My husband has two snowblowers! He usually does the whole blocks driveways for some extra cash! So all sorted on that front!
