The weather has rather sucked here for more than a month. It's really been dismal, especially here just a quarter-mile from the lake. A quick check of the weather records shows that we've had but one 60, last Saturday, since St. Patrick's Day. I can tell you the few perennials in our front yard are way behind years past and that there was a chance of snow a couple nights ago. Don't believe what you see in the news: those readings are for O'Hare Airport. Here it's 20 degrees colder when inland it's balmy. This weekend, though, southern winds will overwhelm the lake breeze and we will see 80s. Crazy, but about time.
In other news, I watched an american crow drink out of a discarded cola can today.
