Today the Trib
's ChicagoWeatherCenter publishes a letter by one "Richard Gladish," an opponent of wintry weather who asks
: "Do you think we will see another 70-degree temperature before spring?" Well, that's asking for a lot! Last time I checked, Nate Silver
(the only mortal man who could possibly answer such a question) was still forecasting elections, not the weather.
FYI, the short answer to Gladish's question is "don't plan on it." Oh come on now, don't act surprised!
