Still mild Chicago
« on: 11.01. 2012 21:46 »
Getting more impossiblerer, went for a nice ride again today. Wildly mild weather and temperatures in Chicago today, January 11, at around 50 degrees F, but no golden sunset. Snow starts tonight or early tomorrow, so probably benched until April.

Richard,

Plenty cold here in southern Illinois today!  Spitting snow and the ground is starting to freeze!  You HAD to say something!  *sad2*
