Temperatures dropped below freezing overnight in several parts of Chicagoland–ushering in a slightly earlier-than-normal end to the growing season.
Good gravy. It is still so stupid hot. Even if it’s not triple digits, this is still gross. My shirt is holding onto every inch of my back. Walking is hard. Biking makes me feel and smell like a surly viking. THIS MUST STOP. Let’s go cool off and remember that we live in an age where for the low, low cost of our children’s future with an ozone layer, we can be cold right now – YEAH! Besides, they’ll probably invent totally green-recyclable-organic A/C units that make the rainforest glow with Gaia’s energy. We deserve to be cold, and the kids will fix it! DOUBLE YEAH!
This Cubs Opening Day won’t be setting any records for cold, but it will require a jacket – and your plants will require protection overnight as a freeze threatens the area.
