Over the last decade or so it seems like we are remarking on how strange the weather and weather related conditions are.  Area (including Chicago) schools are closed a second day for the wind chill.  I grew up in this area and I can't remember a time when wind chill has closed schools.  The governor of Illinois has just declared an emergency because of a shortage of natural gas.  He has asked consumers to conserve electricity and not run appliances like clothes dryers.  I have never seen that happen here either.  So what happened to the bonanza we supposedly were getting from hydraulic fracturing?  This might be part of the problem but I can't remember so many explosions, leaks and other accidents involving oil, natural gas or other fuels as we have seen over the last three or four months.

This is a refreshing attitude.  Let's see what she does.

Another reason not to put apps on your phone.  Why make it easier for the snoops to follow you?
