    Driving to Chicago - Hazardous Weather

    For those of you driving to Chicago for the Duke game tomorrow, be aware that we have a winter storm approaching that will likely make travel difficult tomorrow and Thursday.

    The brunt of the storm will occur in Iowa from Wednesday afternoon into Wednesday night. Illinois will be impacted Wednesday night and Thursday. After the snow ends, high winds will continue to make travel difficult or even worse as there will be a lot of blowing and drifting snow. Right now we are looking at 4 - 7" in central Iowa and 6 - 8" into Illinois.

    If you are leaving from central Iowa, you should be ok if you are on the road by mid morning Wednesday. Coming back Thursday might be a problem....

    See everyone in Chicago!!! Go Cyclones!

    The weather is such ********. It's been clear for how long now and it'll be clear for the forseeable future after Wednesday/Thursday.

    Funny thing is that we were in Chicago this weekend. Watched the weather once. They said that it was cold, but it could be worse, and pointed to our weather report. Apparently, it's a few degrees colder here than Chicago.

    I take it back. You're already making enough of a guy check for 5 men.

    From what I hear, teenage girls are much better drivers.

    I'll have to ask Flagguy. He drove all the way to AZ with him!

    I didn't get to drive. Rental car and I'm not 25.

    Additionally, I could make a helluva case that I was nowhere NEAR the worst driver in that vehicle, and I'm guessing Flag Guy would agree.

    Trying to say you drive better than Flag Guy can't mean a whole lot. Good night, if you've seen the guy walk, I can't imagine his driving.........

    Flag Guy can't take crap. He drove the crappiest shifts, through the crappiest states. Midnight to 7am through New Mexico, Oklahoma, West Texas, etc. over the course of our trip.
