    Re: Gameday Weather

    I hope you didn't just jinx us... Weather people do not know what is going to happen tomorrow, let alone this weekend...

    I will pray and hope they are right!

    We had a lot of bad weather early in last season, so hopefully karma is reversing itself.

    Isolated t-storms and high of 78 is beautiful? At least that's what I see on your link.

    Slight chance of rain, but the temp looks perfect.

    Wow, go figure, it has changed since yesterday. Like I said above, they are not sure what is going on tomorrow, let alone this Saturday.

    Re: Gameday Weather

    I hope it's nicer than last year's UNI game, although that is a fun memory in retrospect. Rolled into Ames with my old roommate and both of our wives. Realize quickly that it is going to rain for a long time and we have no canopy and scramble around Ames before finally finding some in stock at the old Wal-Mart by the mall. We then proceed to the C-lots where we are the only people there besides a lonely looking old man with a little grill sitting out in the rain with his rain poncho on. Men got drenched setting up the canopy while the wives mocked from the truck. Still one of my favorite tailgates.

    Re: Gameday Weather

    Last year's UNI game was the worst weather I've seen for an early season game in a long time.

    But it was still a lot of fun.

    I laugh at comments knocking forecasters.

    I'd bet these guys are in the ball park of their forecast over 90% of the time..as long as its within a 2-3 day window. If forecasters were sports handicappers we would hang on their every word.

    In central Texas, we've been at 100+ for almost 80 days this summer and there hasn't been any more than a fart of rain to speak of during that time. Dear God yes, isolated t-storms and 78 sounds positively divine.

    No one said anything remotely close to that, and you know it.

    Re: Gameday Weather

    Last years first game sucked weather wise(For tailgating at least). It cleared up by game time.
