Chicago In The Middle – the visible spectrum, spring, and St Patty’s Day

March 18, 2012

Think about a rainbow? They appear in the sky when sunlight mixes with raindrops. Can you name the colors in order?

During an abnormal 1st quarter of 2012 in which Spring arrived before St. Patrick’s Day, Chicago was directly in the middle–green outfits, green water, and green life. People migrated to Chicago from all over the midwest to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day and decorate themselves with green.

The city continued its tradition of dyeing the Chicago River green.

At the same time green life was awakening from hibernation in the trees and on the ground. Isn’t life beautiful?
