Last Thursday a few friends and I spent the evening chasing the sky. We drove to the coast of Lake Michigan in our attempt to see the Northern Lights. Despite the cloud cover, whipping winds, and very chilly weather the night turned out to be worth it all. No, we didn't see dancing lights but we did listen to great music, shared ice cream in the car, star-gazed, and talked until the early morning. Even Mother Nature dumping a little freak blizzard on us around 3 am couldn't take my smile away.
