I grew up in Chicago, IL and I remembered how boiling and miserable it was in the summer, and the weather was never the sameâ€¦ It would be cool and comfortable a single afternoon and boiling and smelly the next.
Both of us lived in an area where the people I was with and I were close to the lake, however it wasn’t a pleasant area of the city.
When I was younger, the people I was with and I visited family members who lived in Orland Park, IL. It wasn’t far from Chicago, however it was different. The air was cleaner, and the un-even temperatures didn’t seem to be so oppressive. I knew I could call Orland Park, IL, home. I swore that when I got older, I would live in Orland Park, after middle school, I went to school for Heating as well as Air Conditioning. I wanted a job that I could have, no matter where I lived. I wasn’t planning on leaving Illinois, however I was planning on moving to Orland Park, IL. I wanted to raise my family where there were things the people I was with and I could do as a family and the air was clean. I wanted them to go mini hockeying in an area that was spacious and not cramped into a half-acre lot and people fighting for room to move, but when I got married, my fiance agreed she would rather raise our kids in Orland Park than in Chicago! Until the people I was with and I really moved, I would not have thought the weather could be so much different. Without the heat of asphalt and crowds of people, 72 degrees seemed even cooler than it did in Chicagoâ€¦ Orland Park, IL was a great location to live.
