March #SOLC Day 31
I awoke this morning to some ominous clouds moving slow but sure across the lake from north to south.
I saw on my phone that there was a fire earlier this morning in Pilsen. Could that be what I’m seeing, I wondered? I tried to sniff to see if I smelled smoke. Nope.
Then I turned on the T.V. The weatherman was talking about low clouds moving in over the lake. It was cold weather. Those were the clouds I was seeing out my window. The meteorologist said it was currently 38 degrees, but that two hours earlier it was 52.

I was fascinated. It’s a rare day around here that we get to see actual weather, cold air, moving in the sky. It was foggy. Soupy. “The clouds are shrouding the tall buildings in the city and on their way to taking out Millennium Park,” said the Meteorologist. It sounded like a science fiction movie. The Stratus clouds are taking over the city! Take cover! Run for your life!
The traffic lady came on next. She spoke of the threatening low cloud ceiling that was disabling the traffic copters this morning. Then she showed a picture of the sunrise, currently taking place in a southwest suburb. A tale of two cities.
The forecast for today? In the 40’s here, but low 60’s in the burbs. Looks like it’s springtime in the city. Always cooler by the lake!
