Polar Vortex – What does that even mean? Well in Chicago it means waking up to -15F with wind chills as low as -52F yesterday. Today it means waking up to -10. After walking from the L stop to my office (less than 5 minutes) my forehead hurt from the cold. It was the only part of my body exposed to the air. So it got me thinking about 5 places I’d rather be right now than in the midst of a polar vortex.

Hanging out with Kiwis is much better than -52F. It’s not even fair to compare the two. Photo Credit: letisha81 on flickr

Where would your top places be to escape the polar vortex?
