I still think it’s a bit ridiculous New Jersey will host the Super Bowl. I don’t think I want the NFL’s ultimate game decided by a meteorological event. Think about the classic Super Bowls of the past 15 years or so.

One of the worst Super Bowls ever came in a weather game, when the Colts defeated the Bears in the rain, in a game best remembered for Rex Grossman’s incompetence.

The fine people at tell me (and anyone else with a computer) that there’s a 50-percent chance of rain and/or snow today in Sioux Falls.

It’s April 23. Oy.

I don’t know the exact numbers, but we’ve gotten a bunch of snow this month – too much. Yet on Saturday it’s going to be 73 degrees. What the what?

There’s an old saying in the Dakotas: If you don’t like the weather, wait a minute; it’ll change. But this is ridiculous. (more…)

I covered 45 miles of straight freeway in 4 hours Sunday. Not on foot or by summersaulting. By car. One made after 1984. And it didn’t break down or explode or have kittens. (more…)
