Going by USCF on the train Sunday I couldn't believe that I'll be there in 4 weeks for OD.

There better be a decent melt otherwise the already poorly managed OD parking situation will be compounded by lost spaces dues to snow piles.

I thought extended periods of snow cover insulated the soil. I would have thought that after the snow has melted, the ground would thaw more quickly after a cold winter.

Maybe if it hadn't been so blasted cold on top of things. There was a story on Channel 5 last night about frozen water pipes in Elgin - someone from the water director's office said the frost line in some areas has extended 60-80 inches below the surface.

One of the papers here in the NW 'burbs has mentioned the weather is making trouble for the spring sports. The outdoor sports have been forced to practice inside and there and even when the snow melts, the fields will have to be thawed and dried before they can be used.

#WhiteSox manager Robin Ventura confirms that Chris Sale will be his Opening Day starter. "He's our best pitcher," Ventura said.

I've already decided I'm going to sit this year's OD out. I've been there the last 4 years (all wins!), but between the weather, their performance last year and the awful experience I had trying to get parked last year, I'm out.

I'll go enjoy a game sometime in April as a walkup when the weather is nice.

Accuweather is saying 51 with some showers later in the day so far. I'll be there rain or shine for my and my cousins 8th straight opening day.

Pretty meaningless 20 days out. Check back starting three days beforehand.
