“Windy City” does appear to have originated as a New York newspaper’s gibe against Chicago’s civic boasting in the run-up to the 1893 Columbian Exposition. But, oh, those literal, meteorological winds! I spent the first 40 year of my life in Chicago. It was on Christmas Eve 1983, crossing what was then the IBM Plaza with the wind chill at a bracing 81 below zero (air temperature merely minus 26) that California started to sound real good.
