Sorry AJ, I found this via Ravelry and just wanted to share the laughs. I have been to Chicago and can verify that this chart is more or less accurate(well, I can verify that it gets pretty effing cold in Chicago in November).

Through the magic of clicking on links and lurking on the Big 6 on Rav, I found this.
Being from Chicago, I laughed...a lot!
And it's quite true. I should also add that these temperatures can happen anytime during the year! xD
(Except, hell has yet to freeze over...almost did last fall, no wonder why it was so effin' cold this past winter!)
