Waiting for Spring

It's been a few months since I skywatched. Today felt like a great day to jump back into the game.

When the temperatures decided to take a very spring-like turn and hit the mid 60s today, I simply had to get outside. I went over to a park near the office (Lake Park in Des Plaines, IL) and walked around. Nothing is in bloom yet, but it was nice and sunny out, and there were a lot of people enjoying the break from winter.

Here's the marina area of the park, where boats have been parked for the season and are waiting for consistent warm temperatures. My guess is it'll be a few more months before either of these feel the water.

The sky is not the most dramatic, but I should get points for timeliness. It was only a few hours ago.


  1. Looks like the perfect way to spend a beautiful day!

  2. Nice photo, looks like it would be nice to be on the water
