If it's Spring, why do I still feel like hibernating?

Answer? Because this is Chicago.

From this morning's Tribune website:
Issued by the National Weather Service at 4:46 am CDT on March 20, 2008

... Winter Storm Watch now in effect from late tonight through
late Friday night...

.Snow is expected to overspread the area after midnight tonight
and continue through the day Friday before diminishing early
Friday evening. There is a potential for storm total snowfall
accumulations of 5 to 7 inches over much of the watch area.

A Winter Storm Watch means there is a potential for significant
snow... sleet... or ice accumulations that may impact travel.
Continue to monitor the latest forecasts.
Nothing says Spring in Chicago like the forecast of snow.

We had to leave Ft. Myers for a minor medical emergency. Here we are in NW Ohio with sunshine and blue skies all about us today and snow looming ahead for tonight and on Easter. I think I'll get a snowsuit for church on Sunday. I guess this is just some weird joke on "global warming". I was sent a picture of Macinaw Island with a huge ice wave on Lake Huron --- looks like Michigan doesn't know about the warming problem either.

I got in the car today and the thermometer thingy in the car said it was NINETY ONE DEGREES.

That can't be right.

We had 6" of snow here yesterday -- 4.8" officially, but we definitely had more -- then another 2" or so overnight.

Meanwhile, we turned on the Sox game in Scottsdale -- and they were misting the fans (just like produce in the store) to keep them cool. Sari, couldn't you share a little of that excess temperature with the rest of the country?
