    Yep, much nicer weather than Green Bay! Been 70's and up since Sat! Flights from Indy were $495, from Chicago $211. Times two people and it was worth the drive and staying the night before!

    i see your point !!

    that is a big difference on price.


    i think it is about 3.5 hour drive to ohare from where you are.
    not sure if you are using midway or ohare.


    did you check out the prices at lambert field/st louis?



    i found milwaukee to be a better deal for my May trip than chgo for going to the east coast.


    the way prices are now for air have increased and not coming down for my trips this year.

    Yeah, it stinks. Airfare just seems higher each time I look. For our August CA trip, I booked in Jan. First time I have ever booked so far out. Good thing though, as so far, the price has risen $800.:scared1:

    Patiently waiting for SW to open Christmas time flights. I don't see how other airlines can open earlier.

    And Raven, thanks for the cooler weather and mighty thunderstorms last night. To understand how used to storms we are, my DD's soccer tryouts were last night. Two strikes of lightning in the backround didn't scare them. Some light rain did not. Three more closer strikes of lightning didn't. A really close one and accompaning huge downpour did. I had my cheap flip flops on. Did NOT want to fall in the muddy field that was quite far away from the parking area. Needless to say, DD and I were wet, really wet, by the time we got in the car.

    However, right now the sun is shining brightly. More storms today, but isolated. Oh well. More normal 50's temps the next couple of days.

    Happy Thursday to all! :coffee:

    Speaking of weather...ours is starting to get into a typical summer pattern but a bit early. Supposed to be in the mid to upper 80s with storm chances each day for the next few days and we're supposed to hit 90 on Tuesday. If you're coming down in the next week or so, pack light...it's gonna be very warm.

    I hope its nice for The Masters at Augusta this weekend. I don't really like golf but I've always enjoyed watching that particular tournament and it has always been a dream of mine to go one year. But alas...I don't have the money nor know anyone that could invite me. :sad:

    Oh well...have a great Thursday!
    :thumbsup2

    kfed - aw, what a cutie! so alert and the nemo blankie is a nice touch.

    todd - saw that 4-day master's tickets resaling for $4 K:scared:

    MH saw the storms that hit you guys before they visited us last night, glad they disappated somewhat. I just got done picking up everything that blew around in my yard, had 60 mph+ winds and ping pong size hail that beat up my hyacinths.

    I've read that FLA is lightening strike capital. Scary stuff! Do they have the lightening detectors in place for sports? They installed them here after my middle DS as a tween was waiting for a storm to pass during a BB game. I was at another field with youngest DS for a t-ball game. The coach was supposed to have them under the picnic shelter but they all had ventured out and were milling about in the light drizzle to cool off. My son happened to touch the fence, then lightening struck it. Went out thru his cleats into the ground, burning his shoes/feet. He went into mild shock and spent the night in the hospital but lucky it wasn't worse.

    Keisha,
    Sorry about your plants. Just a few miles north of me, they had good size hail. I live in the southeast part of PA, and our summers are hot and steamy. The storms we are having are just like a summer thunderstorm, but this time bringing much cooler air.

    I doubt the field I was at had lightening detectors. Us parental units were very good at seeing them though!:rotfl2: (We were also disappointed the trees we were under, were still bare and not a good umbrella.) I am sure more professional sport areans have them in our area, and maybe the schools' fields. We were in a township park field that is leased to the soccer club DD belongs to, and coaches that really wanted to get the tryouts complete.

    I am so glad your DS was ok. We hear of injuries and death from strikes every once in awhile. Mostly in the summertime.

    And Metro, I'm hoping you have unseasonably warm weather this coming Christmastime.

    Yeah, the storms were wicked here last night. We gathered the kitties and headed to the basement (with beer of course ;)). The sirens were going off for what seemed like two hours. We didn't have much damage in our direct area but we were lucky as winds were measured at 101 mph!:scared1:

    I am glad all is well. Seems like the midwest has been rocked with storms and tornado's these days, as well as April snow in the upper midwest.

    Oh, we had 12" of snow here two weeks ago. That was after two days of temps in the upper 60's. We have WEIRD weather here.

    Did i miss waving goodbye to Carole? :wave2:My DIL is on a girls trip to NYC this weekend.

    Lynne We used to head to ohiopyle often. I was fond of hiking cucumber falls when it was more than a trickle;) I always thought that area reminded me of rainforest climate. The detectors weren't common here until my son's incident, let's just say i convinced them it would be a good idea.:bitelip: Always hated trying to be in two places at once when kids on different fields miles apart but if coaches can't be responsible enough to monitor the skies, then technology is needed kwim?

    cats - check
    beer - check

    :rotfl:
    seriously, sounds scary, glad all is well

    lol

    have enjoyed the warmth and sunshine here this week, temps supposed to dip a bit tomorrow but then bounceback seasonally next week, finally spring is here!
