Chicago winter of 2011 – 2012 to be worst winter EVER!
So said many experts, with the media zealously using such ostentatious predictions to sell newspapers and attract website clicks. Those of us living in the Chicago area are still waiting; so far this has been the warmest winter in 80-years. Tomorrow is Groundhog Day and that leaves only around 6-weeks or so for us to be awestruck with the experts’ abilities to make precise long-term predictions. Is it remotely possible that science and technology still does not measure up to such a task? Obviously. However, do not expect the media or the weather experts to admit as much.
