The Chicago Files

A CANADIAN EXPAT'S EXPERIENCES AND OBSERVATIONS LIVING IN THE WINDY CITY!

lake-michigan-december-18-20131

I am always in wonder when it comes to the ever-changing scenery over and on Lake Michigan.  I’ve seen fireworks, transparent mist rolling onto shore (which my very funny husband told me was a noxious Lake Michigan gas and that we needed to grab the gas masks ASAP)!  I’ve seen clouds of every, size and shape.  I’ve seen a full moon the shade of an orange, shining its luminescent beams onto the water.  I’ve seen hot air balloons, fighter jets, and I swear a green meteor (it screeched across the sky and disappeared as quickly as it arrived).  I’ve seen distant ships on the horizon.

Lake Michigan is the only great lake out of the five that is completely enclosed in US territory.  Chicagoans are very proud of this lovely lake; now I am too!  Oh by the way, if you click on the picture above, you’ll be able to see it much better!

    I didn’t know that Lake Michigan was the only Great Lake that was completely within the US. How interesting! I’m enjoying reading about how you are acclimating yourself into the “Chicago” lifestyle.

      Oh that’s wonderful! I saw it in February, 2011. I could hardly believe it! It was a florescent green!

      1. I couldn’t have seen it then as I was out of the country. I’m pretty sure I saw it in March 2012. It was big. It was fluorescent green and it travelled so quickly that I didn’t have time to open my mouth and say, “Oh look!” before it was gone. I was beginning to think we were special until I Googled it. There have been lots of sitings. Well!

    Meet Cher! This is an earlier post of hers but I loved the photograph so I thought I’d share it with you. Cher is an ex-pat now living in Chicago, and her blog is about everything the Windy City has to offer… Stop by and say hello – she’s one of the friendliest bloggers I know!

    I’m a Chi-town native sent abroad in the Air Force. I look forward to your thoughts and experiences of my “old stomping grounds,” if for no other reason than a touch of home. Found you via SuzieSpeaks, so thanks to her for the reblog!
