It was snowing in the Loop about an hour ago. 40 degrees out and snow. Very odd.

Never a bad time to climb... unless the weather is really horrible, and then you climb inside!

Well I took detours, but not on purpose... lol... Randall Rd sucked ass and took me forever... then I finally get up to the entrance to 90 and its completely stopped... 30 minutes later I finally get through the toll and the traffic didn't let up, so I got off on 31 and took it to 72... sat in some more stop and go... then finally opened it up once I got over the bridge in West Dundee... still worth it though!

REALLY!
I can't believe this shit. I just knew we were not going to get out of April without a winter storm. I just figured it would be an ice storm.
