Mixed reviews on Chicago's chilly temps

Posted: Updated:
CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) -

#Tasteoffall is a trending topic on Twitter.

The social media site was flooded with reaction as temperatures dropped to the mid to low 60's. Arianna Rausch tweeted, "Lovin' this weather," but not everyone was impressed with the October-esque breeze in July.

"My Chicago fleece, I can't wear this in Green Bay," said Jodi Sullivan.

Sullivan bought a hot pink fleece to keep warm.

"It does feel like the fall, it's football weather," said Sullivan.

The National Weather Service says the last time it was this cool on July 27th was in 1981 - it was 69 degrees. Saturday set a new record at 65 degrees.

"There was that huge heat wave and it was so nice, we got a cute tan and now we're freezing, what is going on, this ain't Alaska, this ain't Alaska," said Daniel Fani, a Chicagoan.

Even so the Crown Fountain in Millennium Park was still able to attract plenty of visitors, young and old, for fun without sun but plenty of splashes in the water.

At Hamilton Park, people traded in sundresses for sweaters at the Resident Association of Englewood's So Fresh Saturdays series showcasing local artists and at Lorraine Dixon Park in Avalon, the Taste of WVON didn't miss a beat despite the cooler than norm temps.

"Last year it was so hot, everybody was sweating so I think it's actually better that it's cooler because it's not as hot… We still consider today to be perfect because as long as it's not raining, it's a great day," said Deanna Burrell, Director of Client Engagement at WVON.

    Deep beneath the hustle and bustle of Tribeca lies a modern-day oasis brimming with old world charm: Aire Ancient Baths, my new favorite city escape. The breathtaking spa is illuminated by hundreds of candles and smells of invigorating eucalyptus. For around $80 you can bathe in the tranquil blue pools for 90 minutes and find the temperature that's right for you.

    From coffee shops in Brooklyn to restaurants in Manhattan, we find speakeasies standing out by blending in. When people in Bushwick want a green machine juice blend they visit Leticia Castillo's Owl Juice Pub. But first they must find the owl. "We been doing fine without a sign," Castillo says.

    Only 10 percent of people who get CPR from a bystander actually survive. But two young men in Westchester County have now patented a device that could dramatically increase those odds and save lives. John and Chris DiCapua's sitting room in their parents' Westchester County home has had a unique guest lying around for quite a while now: a CPR dummy. What began as an idea from their time as Boy Scouts is now a device that could potentially save lives.
