The weather sucks

Man, planning on leaving from the Joliet, IL area Tuesday for Mesa, AZ. Looks like high winds, rain/ice and or snow. Usually head down I55 into Missouri - Arkansas to Texas and west to AZ. Sigh

Retired and loving it.

You are heading the wrong way... 84 today (Clearwater, FL).. record highs again... winter poked it ugly head out here a couple weeks ago..the temp dropped to 50 degrees.. AC is on everyday.. never made it to the Keys the first week in December.. had to cancel... bummer


Weather channel showed some bad stuff heading east, (lived in Spring Grove IL until 1998, used to race at the Rockford drag strip, I think it was called Byron or something like that), may be a break in the weather for you in the next couple of days.. jump at it

Well Maddad I'm about an hour and half West of you and yes sounds like a good winter storm is rolling in with some ice. Good luck I'll say a pray for you for no problems!
I hope to be retired some day and get away from these winters as well
