The Chicago Files

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

Lake Michigan Sunrise Feb 13 2015

The thoughts of warmer weather today were a tad bit presumptuous on my part!  Awakened by this masqueraded ‘warm’ greeting of a sunrise still unfolding made me feel as if I could throw open the windows, grab the beach towels, slap on the sunscreen and………………….

Reality kicked into high gear.  It’s February, and it’s Chicago, and there is a layer of ice on parts of Lake Michigan.  Ah, but the sunrise certainly warmed my spirit to start the day; I hope you enjoy yours!
