    85 degrees w/sunny sky here in Chicago (in the middle of March), hanging out with the family. I got to see my Niece and Nephew....

    Awesome....

    It's like summer here.

    Plant life booming and frogs croaking...

    It's insane but I'll take it - especially after last winter. This one has been candy.

    Any day above ground is a good day.

    True, as I privately prayed in church today, that, and for the rest of my family...

    I used to love the weather in northern Illinois - Joliet in my own case, and in the late fifties;
    the blast of wind from the nw while I worked cutting stone for stone masons;
    dumping the mortar sand on top of a culvert pipe and burning fuel inside it to thaw it for mixing;
    the snow piled up in the parking lots until June, sometimes July.
    I saw it snow as late as May even later I think it was.

    That, of course, was before the current problem of global warming

    Crawled around under the truck with a multi-meter tracking down a short to the starter solenoid. Haven't found it yet...but still a great day.

    I'm from the Gurnee/Waukegan area (Great America) and it was 85 here today (in the sun potentially even hotter). We had to put sun block the little ones.

    I'll take this weather any day of the week...

    Pretty nice day over here in Mount Morris, IL too. A few more warm days like this and I'll quit wearing undies for the summer.

    Last time I checked the weather this is supposed to continue for the foreseeable future. At least the unusual warmth.
