I figured picking the coldest day of the year to bring the show back which to me is perfect timing.  While it’s -16 degrees here in Chicago it’s cold enough to have closed schools and some businesses today and tomorrow. Regardless it’s nice to be back and I can’t tell you how much I appreciate all the calls, emails and texts I received asking if I was okay. I’ll do my best to share an explanation for my absence on the show today.  It’s good to be back, I missed my elevator family.
