I am currently writing these Hot Links during the peak disaster hours of this "air storm"(?). The city has essentially shut down. School districts, campuses, churches, businesses, and just about anything else with 4 walls. I am trapped in my house because of air. My body burns from head to toe if I walk out just to my garage but also sometimes things go completely numb and it hurts and I am not loving life with all my heart right about now. They are setting fire to the railroads in Chicago just to make sure they are able to be used for goodness sake. If you're reading these from up North, please don't go outside and please stay warm. But anyways, yes this weather has given me a lot of free time on my hands to write up these Hot Links, so I guess let's do that now.
