Eddie K, "The Lunchtime Roller Blader." Des Plaines Illinois. Tuesday, November 19th, 2013., a photo by Eddie from Chicago on Flickr.
Although it was only 34 degrees Farenheight outside, the bright sunshine, cloudless sky and a very faint trace of a breeze blowing actually made it feel pretty good all in all.
Here I am roller blading along the asphalt exercise path, at a place known as West Park located in northwest suburban Des Plaines Illinois.
With my warm up jacket hood tucked underneath my helmet for ear protection, this was one of my last opportunities, to enjoy some late season roller blade skating outdoors on my lunch break.
Chicago's weather has since turned sharply colder, with highs in the mid to upper 20's, and night time lows in the teens. Brrrrrr!
