I'll have something about the Chicago teacher's strike after lunch, but first, I must complain about the returning heat:
The warm-up brings Chicago its 100th day of 27°C-plus degree temperatures; another due Wednesday putting us 2 days from 2005's all-time record annual tally
Tuesday afternoon’s predicted 29°C high is an early August-level reading and 4°C above the September 11 average maximum of 25°C.
The warm-up follows a chill Monday morning, the likes of which hasn’t happened here since early June when the official morning low dipped to 9°C.
I'll probably have to turn on the A/C for the first time in almost a week. I am so looking forward to autumn...
