Crisis Mode

As the much ballyhooed Snowmageddon 2011 picked up steam earlier this evening, two Chicago icons achieved worldwide notice as trending topics on Twitter.

While the Snowpocalypse raged outside, forcing the closure of Lake Shore Drive and ripping away hunks of the stadium surrounding Wrigley Field, I fumed inside, seething because I'd lost my wireless Internet connection.

After testing and retesting seemingly every inch of my apartment for a wireless hotspot over the course of the evening, I finally found one.

As I type this very sentence I am seated on the floor of my bathroom, laptop propped on the lid of the toilet, DailyBoothing the night away as Snowzilla's mocking laughter echoes from the window.
