Just when you thought we were out of the woods, Old Man Winter is pulling the cruelest of moves.

As I am writing this, it is 60 degrees outside the WGNA studios. And I am having a hard time accepting the fact that at this time on Friday I will be cleaning snow off of my car. But that is late February/Early March in Upstate New York!
