Snow and ice storm coming Sunday

Postby Shorty » Sat Feb 19, 2011 4:37 pm

I read there are 60,000 protesters today at the square. But a snow and ice storm is coming Sunday. Will it keep away the protesters?

There is a call out to bring shovels to the square and help clear things out. It's a lot to ask, but I feel like we can show them what hard working Americans are all about.

The mixed precip has begun. They say roads will become dangerous later today and Monday. I don't see how protesters will be able to safely congregate downtown, especially the out of towners.

It's been downgraded to a weather advisory here in Madison. On radar it looks like it will end here by 2pm. Lucky for the protesters.

AFSCME and MTI are holding union meetings at 2 p.m. I assume many will be at the Capitol when the meetings end.

Weren't politics supposed to be kept out of the "Town Vibe" section?

We make an exception whenever 60,000+ people overwhelming agree that politics IS what the town is vibing to.

Well, that's usually the way the left handles things when they aren't going their way. Uspuring the democratic process, illegal strikes, fake doctor notes...whatever it takes, right?

Yes, we were paying attention to the Rovian tactics of the GOP and decided it's time to usurp the right's playbook.

The vibe in this town these days is decidedly political.

I wasn't aware of that. I thought it was going to be a big two day storm so that it would affect more than the protest so put it here.
