Chicago Sun-Times

Snow, ice, fog, rain, oobleck?

| No Comments | No TrackBacks

As Chicagoans continue to enjoy their variable weather, the Ride wondered -- did anyone take the city's advice and clear out those catch basins on their blocks to allow the rainwater to get in?

How are readers coping with the weather? Your Ride reporter would love to get on a plane and freeload on my Arizona relations for a couple of weeks, but alas, no vacation time.

The headline on this entry refers to the Dr. Seuss book "Bartholomew and the Oobleck" about a king who wants something new to fall from the sky. It's a great story about how do you don't always want what you think you want, and even the high and proud need to say they are sorry.
