I lived in Great Lakes (about 40 miles north of Chicago) for a bit over two years. I lived right on Lake Michigan (Yes, that lake so full of sewage that you're afraid if you swim in it, your skin will begin falling off your body.) The first winter I was there, temperatures got as low as 52 degrees BELOW zero. Yes, yes, yes, it was due to a wind chill factor - WHO CARES?!!! That's still @%$#%$@ COLD!!! Then the summers - Hey, I LOVE the heat... just not when it feels like you're taking a shower outside!!!
