I am from Chicago originally and moved to Florida 23 yrs ago. I was up there for three weeks last month and hated every minute of it!!!lol! I think I saw the sun for a total of two days! Glad the weather is starting to turn for you. I can't imagine what I would do if I couldn't take my cham outdoors! Nice looking pair you have there by the way! Where abouts do you live exactly?. I lived in Chicago for most of my childhood and then moved to a South suburb called South Holland. Ever heard of it?

Midwest is the best! You are lucky though, this past Sunday us in Central Wisco got hit with like 10" of ice and snow. Just the other day I was outside having a cig and saw most of the snow was gone from my yard. I was thinking within the next 2 days I might be able to take my chams out for some real sunlight then BOOOM! Snow snow snow and more snow. Wouldn't have it any other way though myself, just sucks for my chams. Good thing they don't know what they are missing yet :p

What temps do you start taking your chams outside? I'm in the midwest also but I was thinking it would need to be quite a bit warmer than it was before that ice/snow storm to take them out. I am excited to get them outside but I don't want to do it too soon either.

As long as it is sunny you can take them out in the 50's but I would not keep them out all day in that or anything. I always go by, if I am warm in the sun, then they are warm in the sun. I live in FLA so I don't have to worry about that too much but we do get some cold snaps here and there. I don't hesitate to take my cham out in the 60's but again for short periods of time cause they have to be able to warm up.

Yeah, I don't miss the weather, but I do miss Indy..... lived there all my life. I miss going downtown, and of course all my friends there.

Come to the U.K most of our summers are just rain rain and more rain and if we are lucky we'll get 5mins of sun a day. lol Great pics by the way.

Hi Jeff:

I am in Bolingbrook (right next to you). I keep my chammies outdoors a lot of the summer here. Yours will undoubtedly enjoy the summer sun. :D
