Long tough winter

Well this winter has gone on way to long has been way to cold and snowy for me; here are some stats from the Chicago Critical Mass e-mail listserv:
2008-2009 Chicago Bike Winter Weather Summary
Period 11/1/2008 thru 1/31/2009
Days 92
High (F) 73
Low (F) -18
Average (F) 26
Days Above +20F 36 39%
Rain Days 38
Total Rainfall (inches) 8.74
Snow Days 31
Total Snowfall (inches) 44
Average Wind Speed (mph) 11
So with stats like these and with nothing much keeping me here in Chicago I've started planning my escape. Currently I have two destinations in mind Vancouver and D.C.. My plan is to spend the summer looking for jobs in both those cities and take whatever opportunity I get.
