Well i was sitting on the couch with my kid watching him zap people on the ps3 i bought em and my blackberry goes off telling em Monday night through Tuesday there will be a decent snow event. Now it’s no major snowstorm like i want it to be but least it’s a start. But here is the info for people like Blizzardlord blizzaedking and who ever else lives in the northwest indiana/chicago area. This wont stick around long though cause it will be above freezing the next day. `Dan`
