This week we flirted with 100 degrees. Even though autumn is around the corner, summer made sure to give a hearty reminder it is still here. We also regularly get a nice warm spell around mid-October, but this week was scorching hot. And, as if record-setting 95 degree temperatures weren’t enough, tomorrow we’re supposed to only get up to 65 degrees. That’s a 30 degree temperature swing in three days. Yikes!
This week’s furnace-like temperatures reminded me of last year’s late-June heat when we did hit 100+ degrees. In parts of Chicago, even though civilians opening hydrants is illegal, kids found creative ways to stay cool.
Of course: If its fun its against the law.
