Glad to hear about your unicycles.  I have a few in the garage, too, and ta0 was riding one when I was down there.  I wonder how many others on this forum ride unicycles?

The stories from Chicago are getting more amazing.  Thanks for sharing the picture Eric.  In the news now are all the cars abandoned on Lakeshore Drive......hundreds of them because the storm hit so quickly and they were stuck in the snow.  Those are amazing pictures.  It looks like a giant junk yard!

SNOW DAY in San Antonio!!!!
First time I see the streets all white down here. The schools are closed, businesses don't open until noon. We have like 1 or 2 . . . mm of snow over every hard surface (but not on the grass). Well, actually there is also ice over the freeways and that is the reason of the closings. Today the temperature will go up (to 42F) but we had 3 straight days with the temperature below freezing and that is the first time ever since records have been kept (1885).

One or two Millimeters !!!  Around here, that's not even considered snow... ::)

Also, some of you may have gotten this too, but here's a picture of Judith in front of the Top Museum on Wednesday

No, I did not see that picture.  It's a great one, though.  Certainly that should be in the Top Spinning Hall of Fame!

If Judith was a member of the board (or, is she already?) that picture could enter the photo contest.

I wonder if anybody has built a big snow man top?

I love the Top M. snow picture.  I was wondering how the snow might affect her business. ???

I got up this morning and the temperature on the TV for our area said it was -8 degrees!!!  I couldn't believe it.  What I couldn't believe on top of that was the fact that it is going to be starting to get warmer on Sunday with highs next week in the 40's................and 50 by Thursday!

Could spring really be here?

Hope everyone else is coming out of their crazy weather, too (except for Rusty - it sounds like he is all set for stuff we aren't).
