The Windy City

Chicago, where I am from, is called the "Windy City."  In the winter a cold wind blows off Lake Michigan and it snows a lot.  The temperature gets very cold, sometimes below zero.  

Chicago

In the spring the weather is great.  It's warm and the snow melts.  People plant gardens and start to play outdoor sports like baseball.

In the summer it's hot and sometimes humid.  People swim and turn on their air conditioners to keep cool.  Sometimes it rains or we get thunderstorms.  

In the fall it's cool.  People prepare for winter and buy warm clothes like coats and hats.  The leaves change colors and fall from the trees.  It's very beautiful.
