...Growing season ending...

Many areas outside of Chicago experienced freezing conditions with a widespread killing frost Sunday morning. Given this...and the fact that we are now getting into late October with a lowering sun angle...the growing season is ending across the region. Therefore...frost and freeze headlines will be suspended for all of northern Illinois and northwestern Indiana until Spring 2015.
