    Hoping for this storm to come drop a few inches at least, what do you guys think so far, check out Tom Skilling of wgn's forecast at www.wgntv.com, he seems to be the best liar out of all the lying weatherman on chicago area news.

    i was hoping no one would mention it. you see, the last 2 little storms there were no posts about it here until after the storm. Now thats it brought up, it will miss us!

    Im just praying it doesnt snow during my vacation, the 17-20th. Its a paid vacation by the inlaws so i have to go! I would rather stay home!!

    Well according to my friends at the National Weather Service in Moline this storm is coming further north. Strong possibility of blizzard conditions. just have to wait and see.

    I am glad it is paid because you would have to pay for my vacation and pay me 50 dollars a hour to go on vacation with my inlaws.:D

    Looks like northern IL is gonna see about 4-6 and the further you get to I80/ about 1/5 down from the top of the state will be as much as a foot. Thats alot more snow than they were expecting for this area on saturday, only time tells. Good for us looks like the big storm is finally here, but i hate to speak to soon

    Looking Good, Looking Good. Does anyone have a reliable subs looking for work for this storm and into the next few weeks? I have one of my F350's down from an accident and need a truck up in the arlington hts/palatine region for 3 accounts. Thanks for the help.

    if you do not need them salted, i can most likely do them. I am going to bed right now since i have been up since 7am on SUNDAY but call and leave a msg if you still need help.
