Remember when you could go outside and not worry about collapsing from heat exhaustion?
The past week has seen temperatures routinely climb into the upper 90s and low 100s. . . .
Ordinarily summer is something we in northern Illinois look forward to with great anticipation. It's much preferred to the long, gray, cold winter. Finally we get to go outside and do things and have fun.
Not so much this year.
This year summer has meant huddling indoors to shield yourself from the beating sun. And you can't just start your car and go. Now you have to start your car and let the air condition run for a while to cool it off before getting inside because the interior is like 200 degrees.
. And people that will force them from their homes and into the local mall or movie theater.
Are we actually starting to miss winter?
