"Chicago police say people are being robbed at gunpoint of their coats, especially those wearing Canada Goose jackets."

 

And with an exquisite sense of timing, Air New Zealand announces its new direct flights to Chicago.

 

 

 

Edit: Oops, my bad. Apparently that was announced some time ago. Don't know why it only just now turned up on one of my feeds.

There are a number of great pics on Reddit at the moment, showing Chicago gripped by freezing weather. 

 

 

 

Fascinating stuff.

That tweet alone (I know there are many others) is evidence enough that he's not fit to preside. Global warming is about a rise in average temperatures and another side effect is extreme weather conditions at both end of the thermometer

Would be a lot of Chicago people looking enviously at the climate of say Hokitika or Westport, where it never gets extremely hot or extremely cold.
