This past weekend's performances went better than I expected, even with last night's temperature hovering around 32°C on the Pritzker stage.
Our entire Memorial Day weekend has been hot. Yesterday's official temperature at O'Hare (36°C) hit an all-time record for May 27th and was the warmest day in Chicago since 23 July 2012, almost 6 years ago.
So let me tell you how great it felt to be outside, wearing a long-sleeved black shirt and black jeans, singing, for an hour.
The forecast calls for record heat today (35°C) and then some modest cooling by Wednesday.
For the record, that means spring lasted about 24 hours last week.
