Prickly City (7/18/10)

Chicago sits along an enormous body of water and, as a result, tends to be both hot and humid during the summer. Believe me, I know how uncomfortable humidity can be. It makes people tired, grimy, groggy, and irritable. If I were asked to choose between a 30-degree day with a foot of snow on the ground or a 90-degree day with 100-percent humidity in the air, I would opt for the former. But even I don’t delude myself into thinking that “dry heat” is comfortable. Chicago temperatures have hovered near 90 for the past few days, and even though the humidity had been relatively low, it still feels hot outside. Really hot. Too hot. I can’t wait for autumn.
