    Looks like a big storm is going to hit us during the Bears game. :mad: I'm hearing all kinds of numbers with this storm..

    wesport Oh, Yeah!

    The last storm would have been nice .... Got caught up in the jet stream and whisked away. That happens so often these past years.

    So let's predict..... Bears loose by 18, Snow 6-8". ( I like the Bears minus Grosman. I think when he sees the anger in the Saints he'll wet himself )

    haha, no its definitely not tom skilling. I'm still not holding my breath but we will know shortly how good he is. I do believe that he is a private forecaster and is pretty good. I suppose we will see.

    This guy's website has been the most accurate for the last 3 years that I have followed his site.

    He is almost always right on the money with mid-west weather reports and snow fall predictions.

    On the left side of the page is a link 3rd down that says forecast graphic. I have lived by what he says.

    New Look,
    You are right on the money. Plan on dropping the blade after the bears drop the ball and loose the game! 8 or 9 p.m. will be the time to get started.
