Today was so warm in Chicago. 70 degrees, not a cloud in the sky. I don't have class on Mondays, so I went for a run and took care of some errands.

One thing I've learned in my urban planning classes so far this year is how valuable parks are, even when it's too cold for anybody to use them. The weather turns, the people come back, and urban life carries on.

This pic is from the baseball fields in Central Park when it was 30 degrees out on a Tuesday morning. It makes me smile to imagine what they will look like this weekend.
