So, you remember a month ago when I was in Chicago and talking about the bitterly cold weather with the baseball season just weeks away? The temperature did rise a bit to playable conditions, in the 50s and 60s eventually. Then today --
So, I was talking with someone in Chicago this afternoon.
It's snowing. Mind you, it's not heavy snow, and it’s not sticking, but still. C’mon. It’s April 14, and we’re two weeks into the baseball season!
The good news is that both the Chicago Cubs and Chicago Whites have the day off, and tomorrow the Cubs are playing out of town. The bad news is that the Chicago White Sox have a night game tomorrow evening... Happily, no snow is scheduled. Unfortunately, it's supposed to be 39 degrees. And that's the high --during the day.
Scheduling night games in Chicago in April -- not a good thing.
P.S. Subsequent to writing the above, a friend sent me a photo from Wrigley Field. Apparently, at least some snow is sticking to the ground. And since the weather doesn't appear to be jumping up much above freezing until Thursday, it might stick around a bit longer.
This appears to be the bleachers.
