I spent three days in Chicago in August 2009. The first day was a beautiful, warm, late summer day. The last two? They were miserable, rainy affairs. Still, one has to make do with what nature deals them. It can’t be too bad – after all, I did get to see a Cubs game that was played in a tight window between periods of deluge. On my last morning, I just wandered around The Loop and ended up on the harbor, watching all these boats rocking left and right, back and forth, as the wind whipped and the rain began to fall. A rainy, but oddly beautiful, end to my all-too-short visit to Chicago.
