    Just checked the weather forecast for South Bend for next week.

    Hot all week (80's and 90's)...well, HOT compared to the temperate PNW

    Thunderstorms from Tuesday on.

    OK, if it's raining on Friday at the drags, I'm going up against the ChickenHawk

    Yes the weather is a little different in the midwest Dick,talked to Ted last night and he said he has been having a lot of problems with the Chicken Hawk this year,guess I'm not alone.Usually summer thunderstorms come and go so it probably won't be a washout next week.[8D] Want to borrow my slicks?

        I grew up in central Wisconsin and also lived in Cincinnati for several years. I was stationed in the Army at Ft. Campbell and Fort Knox (among other places). I should know the midwest weather, but I think I've blotted it out of my mind .

            Dick,

            It was in the mid 70s already today at 8 am in central MN and we are expecting about 90 degress today. We had 90 degrees yesterday. There is rain moving through the Dakotas and it will probably be stormy here starting tomorrow for a couple of days. The good news is that by the time you get to Minnesota the weather is supposed to be warm, but not stormy.

                    Dick, this Spring has been the absolute worst for local weather forecasters! They are lucky to "get it right" even 15% of the time. Just yesterday on one of the local broadcasts, the Weatherman was going on and on about it being such a beautiful day "not even a cloud in the sky" when a technician switched the background to a live-cam shot showing...guess what...CLOUDS! The Weatherman quickly modified his statement! Couple weeks ago one local Weatherman was saying there was a chance of thunderstorms and some could be heavy ...flipping to another local Weatherman and he shows pictures of a Tornado on the ground and warning people in its way to take immediate cover!!! Since then, the one TV station has been ribbing the others about that little oversight of missing a TORNADO.

                    Bottomline; Come to South Bend for the fun of it all, but prepared for almost anything weather-wise!

                            Just an update for what 41Frank said about Phoenix,
                            the temperature for that area will be 104 - 108 for
                            the remainder of the week....rather than drag races
                            we may want to have camel races....
