If you live here, you know exactly what I’m talking about

It was turned out to be a pretty nice day today. Co-worker, friend and fellow 3pm coffeeist Dave made note of the great weather as we stepped outside this afternoon (at 3pm) to grab some coffee across the street. He asked me if I thought the cold spells had finally come to an end, to which I stated that I felt in my gut that the cold weather was over for the season. I should have known…I should have recognized my short sightedness and thought about the midwest weather patterns that I have experienced for 32 years of my life now. We’re getting close to warmth, but we are not quite there. Today’s high was 62, tomorrow’s high will be 42. Of course!!

It’s not that bad though. All we need right now is a good solid streak of mildy warm weather. Once we get that going, the summer will roll in and then chicago becomes Chicago! for the next six months, and we enjoy living in one of the finest cities in the world again.
