If you live or have ever lived in the Midwest, there’s one unforgettable time of year that truly never fails to completely suck: winter. The first snow fall of winter can be quite magical, and the city of Chicago looks it’s prettiest when it has a light dusting of sparkling white compliments the Christmas lights that set the city a-glow. However, the prettiness and magic quickly subside and make for a what-feels-like-never-ending time period of grey, slushy mess. If you’ve never experienced the pain that is Midwest winters, or were lucky enough to escape them by moving a state where winter ceases to exist, consider yourselves the lucky ones.
There’s no words that close enough to describing the feeling of frigid-cold wind whipping at your face or frostbite taking over your entire body as you chip away at your icy windshield. These 10 GIF’s are for all of my fellow Midwestern folks who can join forces in laughter (more so frustration) at the unescapable hell of winter time.
