Trip Planner

I’m not new to Chicago, but boy this weather gets me every time.

Check out the forecast the rest of the week: Rain (Thursday), rain (Friday), snow (Saturday), snow (Sunday). No doubt baseball, softball, soccer, tennis and track coaches are more concerned about this than I am with scheduling headaches, but coming up with stories becomes increasingly difficult when YOU CAN’T GO WATCH GAMES!!!

I would like nothing more than a two days in a row of 65 degrees and sunshine. Is that too much to ask?

Meanwhile, readers please pass along story ideas as I begin to plot my escape to the Caribbean.
