Today’s Forecast

Today, as the thermometer threatens to hit triple digits, Chicagoland residents (if not the beleagured farmers) are in hog heaven. If there’s one thing we love to do, it’s complain about the weather. Summer’s too hot and dry. Fall is too short. Winter’s too cold … or not cold enough. Spring is too cool or rainy. In January, a common lead story on the TV news is a “snow event.” In summer, it’s drought, tornado, or heatwave.

We forget that while the Chicago area has weather averages for temperature or rainfall, the weather as we experience it is usually moving from one extreme to another. Chicago has a lot of great things going for it. Weather is usually not one of them.
