It's not a canal it's a river. I wish people will stop that.

I cant say it's rising fast, but it's defineitly not slow either...I guess I just haave to wait for the certain level for example surpassing the IBM so it woul looks tall enough to gets a little more excitement..

Nope, it'll be at least 3-4 weeks. They're working on the second transfer floor.

I wouldn't pack until the day before you come so you can check the weather then. Chicago's weather is highly volatile this time of year. Just a couple of weeks ago the temp was close to 30C and just a few days ago it was below zero and snowing. It looks like next week will be around 15-20C but it can change at any moment. It's like the saying goes, if you don't like the weather in Chicago wait 5 minutes.
