The Weekly Swarm: 1/6 – 1/12

Ruby Hornet's The Weekly Swarm

How about last week’s polar vortex, huh? While the weekend was exponentially warmer than the beginning of the week, the potholes scattered across the streets were a firm reminder of the bitter cold front we experienced here in Chicago. With Virgil and I leaving for Utah this week, we’re going to have nothing but cold in our near futures. Nevertheless, the show goes on.
