    I wonder if the “windy city” gets 100 mph winds like the Northwest Pacific coast gets at least once every winter?

    It was called the Windy City originally, I am told, because their politicians were full of hot air, not necessarily because of the wind off the lakes…which is pretty fierce in winter, I’ll admit.

    Thank God he’s carrying his winter weight. Wait, my 2 cats always have winter weight.

    Yea…..I have been out in that wind off of Lake Michigan in January…..not enough clothes in the world to keep you warm on the ramp at O’hare airport.

    Looks just like that here today.
    Here being a couple of hours south of Chicago.

    As for the Chicago wind discussion above, here’s the first couple of verses (but the first two lines are what counts) of Steve Goodman’s A Dying Cubs Fan’s Last Request:
    By the shore’s of old Lake Michigan
    Where the “hawk wind” blows so cold
    An old Cub fan lay dying
    In his midnight hour that tolled
    Round his bed, his friends had all gathered
    They knew his time was short
    And on his head they put this bright blue cap
    From his all-time favorite sport
    He told them, “Its late and its getting dark in here”
    And I know its time to go
    But before I leave the line-up
    Boys, there’s just one thing I’d like to know

    Do they still play the blues in ChicagoWhen baseball season rolls aroundWhen the snow melts away,Do the Cubbies still playIn their ivy-covered burial groundWhen I was a boy they were my pride and joyBut now they only bring fatigueTo the home of the braveThe land of the freeAnd the doormat of the National League

    I may be a Miswesterner, but I know how “Sequim” is pronounced.
