WIAW: Rob’s Bakery

Winter Storm Jonas

Happy Snow Day! Well, really yesterday was the snow today. Today is looking pretty good. We got about 7 inches of snow overnight Friday night. It snowed most of the day Saturday but wasn’t very thick and I don’t think added that much.

Orienting Myself in Chicago

Hello everyone! Last week was crazy. I mentioned a new job and a big move to Chicago. My company wanted me to come out ASAP to attend orientation so I got to spend a little time in the area last week!

The flight out was easy, no travel hiccups. I arrived midafternoon at the Westin Hotel in Lombard. The room was simple but cozy and
