It was 83 degrees in Milwaukee today! Like animals after winter hibernation, the people of the city seem to emerge drearily from their dark hiding places with a renewed hunger for social contact. People were sprinkled in chattering bunches on stoops, patios, and of course- on the shore of Lake Michigan. Our mass-flocking to the lake went without saying. After about an hour, whether by bike, foot, or car; friends left their hang-over headaches at home, grabbed snacks, shades, and beer, and headed to the shore.
At the end of winter, Milwaukee Natives may be a pinch jaded, but the arrival of spring brings on a whole new perspective :)
