The lake breeze at times over the past week has probably been a godsend for many in the neighborhood. If you only live a few blocks off the water it can really make a difference in temperatures. What’s interesting is that the farther you move inland, the hotter it gets. A few days ago it was 91 on Ashland but 82 on Sheridan…why? The answer is no surprise. The buildings act as a wind buffer and block the cool lake breeze from flowing inland. Just another think to think about as developers eye properties in our neighborhood for more high rise development!
