    Well if it happens they can name it after you..."the Grassbuster Blustery Snowstorm". If it doesn't happen how about we get to give you a new screen name just for a little fun?? :D

    Is it a deal Grassbuster?

    I've been following the same weather report.One day it looked like a can't miss!! The next day it was to the North & to the south by Urbana!!!Splitting around Chicago again!!! Here's my theory! Those Damn nuclear power plants!!! They form a triangle around the Chicagoland area.They fired them up in the early 80's......sounds good doesn't :drinkup: it!! That's my story and I'm sticking to it!!!

    I was just kidding around with you Grassbuster. I don't know that the mods would care for that anyway. Speaking of mods, do we have any? Boss are you one? I know Jodi made a cameo appearance then disappeared again.

    Anyway, good luck on your storm prediction, hope it happens as we all know that it's like money falling from the sky... payup !!

    hey that could have been fun ;)

    You could have changed my name to " I hate snow" or " Ford trucks suck " or "Down with blizzard plows" something that every one would yell at me for and tell be to get lost :eek:

    We can still go for it. Instead of a screen name change maybe a pic of you swimming in one of the local lakes Jan. 4th or 5th. Pop a hole in the ice and jump in! In a shallow area of course...don't want to get anyone killed here. Up here they have Polar Daze, and one of the highlights is people slipping on a bathing suit and taking a dip in the lake. Talk about an eye opener... :eek:! I've seen 80 year old men dive right in...crazy.

    Then of course if your predicted storm happens, you get to name it after yourself.

    Any ideas guys??
