    I wonder if the mayor is sticking to his plan to only have the streets plowed during regular business hours. . . .
    Stand up for what is right, even if you have to stand alone.

    yeeeuup. I'm not in the city, where it's warmer with the lake but about 70 miles west, where it's open fields and -13 right now (-30 windchill).

    Global warming, my ass.

    Unfortunately, I have a small layer of blubber to help with that (thanks, holidays!) LOL

    You guys should have AL come and give a speech. All that hot air should raise the temps a few degrees at least . . . .;)

    That global warming isn't apparent in STL either. It's cold here, bitter cold, but at least we don't have any snow. It would be even colder then.

    I hope the weather guys are right. It might get to 40 on Saturday.
