In Chicago, when you're near the lake in the summer, it is always cooler
(some say also kewler) than outlying areas  -- the western suburbs. When
you're near the lake in the winter, it is always warmer than outlying areas.
It's not linked with any significant variation in snowfall, although the
meltaway would be faster nearer the lake. As I've recently learned in these
electronic haunts, the cool breeze off the lake in summer -- the lake
effect -- is the source of "Windy City".
