It’s getting warm … let’s surf!

Sound the trumpets! For the first time this month, the temperatures in Chicago are above freezing! And get this: it’s sunny out, too. Makes me dream about the warm weather to come, beaches, outdoor concerts, biking along the lakefront …

I’m not the only one pining for summer — a comment to Patricia Wright’s post about nature touted a surf therapy program for children with autism. As it turns out, Patricia Wright lived in Hawaii before accepting her position as National Director of Autism Services here at Easter Seals. That’s right — she moved from Hawaii to Chicago two years ago, and she’s still here. Now that’s dedication!

But back to surfing. “This is a very cool program!” Patricia told me. “They had an event every year in Hawaii. Huge names in surfing would show up and surf with the kids.” There are huge names in surfing? Who knew?

Patricia said she did water safety a couple of times for the event, and it was lots of fun. Who knows, maybe this could catch on in Chicago. I’ve heard that some folks surf right here on Lake Michigan from time to time.

I wouldn’t expect any surf therapy programs to spring up here very soon, though. It may be above freezing and sunny this week, but we still have a ways to go.

    Apple now has Rhapsody as an app, which is a great start, but it is currently hampered by the inability to store locally on your iPod, and has a dismal 64kbps bit rate. If this changes, then it will somewhat negate this advantage for the Zune, but the 10 songs per month will still be a big plus in Zune Pass’ favor.
