John Manke is an active former Bay View resident who is involved in numerous neighborhood organizations, including the Bay View Historical Society, the Humboldt Park Fourth of July Association and the Shore Shore Farmers Market. He believes Bay View has a fine tradition in its past that we do not want to lose in the future.
This is the coldest summer that I can ever recall. Who would think that it would be over 90 degrees outside and then 56 degrees that night? Close to Lake Michigan, the temperature stays at almost 70 degrees. When have you ever remembered a summer like this one? It almost seems like the air-conditioning is on outside. Major thunderstorms have not been seen lately. Some hailstones look like snow at times. It seems that as a rain front approaches Lake Michigan, that it seems to fall apart. Try to keep pictures of activities this summer. You will be able to tell your children and grandchildren that were able to live during a really cool summer.
