Feeling a Little Bit Foggy

I experienced a very awesome and eerie site the other day as I was waiting for my daughter to tee off at her high school golf match reminding me of a cool series of products I saw in action recently. The match was under a FOG delay and as I looked across the course at the low lying fog, I …

Last week was the first day outside without a coat and man did that feel good! I love spring in Chicago, and even with this crazy weather we are having with such a long and cold winter, this spring is really going to be a treat.
