Cold, Rainy Weather Has Chicagoans Wondering Where Summer Went

CHICAGO (CBS) — The calendar says July 3 – but the thermometer says September – and it seems like summer has passed us by.

Cold, Rainy Weather Has Chicagoans Wondering Where Summer Went

“Jackets yesterday, jackets today, jackets Monday. Haven’t even been to the pool yet and it’s almost the Fourth of July. Rather depressing,” said Lindsey Clark.

Clark, of Chicago, was out for a stroll on the riverwalk, reflecting on the lazy, crazy days of summer.

And by crazy, we refer to the weather. Too rainy and decidedly un-summery.

“It just seems like every day there’s a chance of showers. There’s not much you can plan until day-of. Game-time decision,” said Clark.

“It’s kind of coming out of nowhere because you’re used to it being hotter and hotter by this point.”

Jake Degnan flew in from New Jersey.

“I think when we landed yesterday it was like 60-something degrees out. Definitely didn’t feel like July 4th weather.”

But it does on both coasts and in New Jersey, where Degnan’s from.

“We’re getting sunburned every day.”
