Blizzard

Last night between the hours of 7:30-9:00, a blizzard happened upon Chicago. I say it this way because we entered the Lookingglass Theatre to see Hephaestus last night around 7PM and we exited the theatre around 9:15 to a completely different looking city. Essentially, it looked like this:



We got lucky that our bus came right away. However, while running toward the bus, I slipped on some ice and The BF turned around just in time to see me slam face first into the side of the bus. I gots class, see!

And btw - Hephaestus is very cool. Performers from the Wallenda Family, Ringling Bros. and Cirque du Soleil join forces in this show about Greek God Hephaestus who, after popping out of the womb a weakling, is cast out of the heavens by his mother, Hera (like she should judge - she married her brother after all). Landing in the sea, Hephaestus went on to become a steel-welding artist. Circus, theatre, music and dance make for a very entertaining show. It's a 4 Stars Must-See, I say.
