2020-04-15 – When I woke up this morning and looked out my window I saw snow.
This is not an unheard of weather condition for April in Chicago. But it’s not normal. One of the historic storms occurred after I moved here so I could theoretically remember it. But I don’t.
Today’s snow won’t be like that snow. The 1982 snow was 9.4 inches. Today’s snow won’t reach an inch. But it will be cold and damp all day. And I’m getting tired of cold and damp.
Yesterday, I wrote about having a family Zoom meeting on the occasion of the 99th anniversary of my father’s birth. We did that and it was fun. We’ll do it again. Maybe we’ll keep doing it after the corona virus is gone. After all, it wasn’t corona virus that kept us from doing it before. It was lack of knowledge that we could.
In a couple weeks, I’ll be doing a Zoom meeting with some of my high school friends to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the founding of the Committee to End Pay Toilets In America—a project we thought of during my senior year and carried on through college and beyond.
