Blasted again

Most of us in Chicago know that there's an inverse relationship between the hype of a winter storm and the reality. Usually it's somewhere around 50% -- that is, when the weatherpeople predict 4 inches of snow, we usually end up with 2.

But when they start to predict 6-12 inches, we know we're in for a bit of a rough ride. Even if you apply the 50% rule, that's still 3-6 inches of white stuff ... WHICH IS ON ITS WAY!!

That's right, if you missed all the fun in Providence last year, just head on down to Chicago's lakefront this Sunday for the Illinois State Championship. If this storm tracks the way it's supposed to, it could be bombogenesis all over again ...

ONLY 15 DAYS TO NATZ!!

Damn! I'm bummed I won't be there. Here in Austin we're getting a lot of rain, which means mud for this weekend's TX State Champ races.

Still ain't snow, tho. Have fun!

Those stupid forecasts ruined my book signing last night. The storm didn't even start until an hour after my signing was over, but the hype scared everyone into staying home. Pretty much the only books any of the nine authors sold were to each other!
