And at 32F, most of the city is praising how nice the weather is.

Too many years since a Canadian team won the Stanley Cup, huh?

We could use some warmer weather, that's for sure, but I'm thinking 110 might be a bit much for my liking. How are your fish/plants handling the hot weather?

Chicago doesn't usually get that much snow at one time, but the various weather patterns needed to cause this mess aligned perfectly and voila - 24" of snow in less than a day.

thats because its to watered down sounds like u were way over the % that is norm acceptable and thats the reaction. normally it will just overheat from zero circulation but damage can be done if its not corrected and still drivin. at the min drain half of the coolant and refill with just antifreeze and u should be fine that way the antifreeze will keep everything from going to a block of ice.

I don't really mind, i cheer for my teams (EDM, LAK, PHI, TBL), so in the end it's okay.

But yeah, the state here up north is sort of bad, it goes from 0c to -30c, and back to +4c, back to -20c, everything melts and freezes, making everything here literally a huge ice rink. I had to slide down my drive way on my butt last week because i kept falling .

Northeast and Mid-Atlantic could be looking at more snow around Thursday this week. Early models show conditions similar to last years 24"+ event. We'll have to keep an eye on this one. No forecasters want to say anything about it yet. They've realized they don't have to actually make a prediction until the day before.

Last years December 22" snowstorm was on my birthday/bachelor party. My friends and I were running through center city Philly absolutely wasted trying to catch the last train to the suburbs. What a crazy night...

Im a little tired of snow since I deliver pizza for a living. It seems Ive worked in every storm this year. People who order pizza during a blizzard and don't tip should be blacklisted from ever ordering again.
