Windy Wednesday

The top pic. was Chicago Tues. morning…bright, sunny and cloud-free as you look back west toward downtown from the water intake, which is 2.75 miles offshore. A satellite pic. just before 9am Tues. showed the clearing line over central Lake Michigan.  We had lake-effect clouds on the Michigan side of the lake and they held strong during the day.   In this pic. from the Muskegon Channel shortly before 9 am, you could see the clearing in the very distance just above the horizon.  Temps. were in the 20s Tuesday and the thermometer will head up to 40 on Weds.…
