Is it hot or cold in your neck of the woods? Dealing with a blistering heat-wave or frosty winter morning? Rainy. Stormy. Sunny. Cloudy. Cold. Dry. Wet. Windy. Foggy. Whatever it is, let's talk weather. Feel free to share photos. As always, be kind to yourself and to others. Stay safe.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! This week, it's finally warming up in Chicago, so I want to know what you like to cook and eat when it's warm outside! (Because by a month into summer I am bored of all my warm-weather recipes so clearly I need more of them!) [more inside]
It's the end of another long week. Let's talk about something nice again. Tell me about your travels. Maybe it's a place right in your home town/city, maybe you're planning a long over due summer vacation, maybe it's the beach, maybe it's a hike through the woods, maybe you're visiting your family/friends a few states/provinces over, maybe you're going to Europe or Asia for the very first time, no matter the place or the distance, tell us about your travels.
Good Saturday evening, MetaFilter! I'm a little slow to post this week because MY AIR CONDITIONING DIED so there was all the drama of working over a hot computer in 90 degree heat while waiting for the repair guy.

Go!

And if you are one of our many friends from the lovely lands down under, tell us all about your cool winter plans!
