Another big snowstorm coming. The temperatures have been swinging up and down by 40 degrees a day. 40 and 50 mile an hour winds today, rain and 60 degrees. Tonight, rain changes to snow and tomorrow's high is I think, supposed to be 27. Friday I have to play again and I really don't know what that's going to be like. John
Do you plan the band to snowing days? ;)

We'll play during some pretty nasty weather but not if it's too snowy, icy or cold. The cold wouldn't matter so much but if it's cold enough, nobody will come out. Down around zero and nobody will come out, (unless it's New Year's Eve, and then people kind of expect it). In a real storm like this though, they're closing interstate highways. Tomorrow may be a different story but I don't know.
Sometimes the venue will cancel and sometimes we do. It's usually a mutual decision.
This morning I got up and looked out the window to see snow swirling off the neighbor's roof and the ground was covered. Last night I went to bed about 3:30 AM and it was windy but nothing was coming down. Now there's been a 60 degree swing in the temperature. There were still a few piles of snow left over from the last snow storm, even after a couple of 60 degree days, but this is supposed to be as bad or worse.
Most of our weather travels from southwest to northeast, so I'm figuring Peggy is getting the same thing, only worse. It's always at least 10 degrees colder in Chicago than it is here, and usually a lot snowier. John
John, yes, we are getting that snow now but, again, it's hitting the worst the further south you go. Yesterday it got up to 55 and then the bottom dropped. It's 21 right now at 5:30pm. Schaumburg has gotten maybe like three inches.
Lot of my friends in Kansas City have snow days from work today and one who was having an event discussing a book she wrote about Pat Metheny, a jazz guitarist and composer from Kansas City, and her husband's group playing some of his recordings. It got cancelled also. Peggy
Peggy, Laila and Angel Minchie
Is it still snowing in Chicago today? How much did you get Peggy?
It's bright and sunny but only up to 30 at the moment. My streets are an icy, packed down mess, (as usual). I keep waiting on tonight to be canceled but I expect the highway will be clear so it probably won't be. I bet I'm lookng at another night of playing to a lot of empty seats. John
