It’s the first day of the season that Chicago’s temperature slipped below zero.

In fact, December 10th is the earliest we’ve seen temperatures below-zero since December 9, 1995.

That’s especially tough on the city’s homeless people, who have a hard time finding warm places outdoors.

But there was a ray of sunshine in the South Loop. Some Bears’ fans showed up at an Orange Line ‘L’ stop with boxes full of warm clothing for the homeless.

In Naperville, the temperature after the Bears game was well below zero.

But most people simply accepted that cold weather is a part of every Chicago winter, and they say they’ll make the best of it.
