Vabs’ Weekend Wisdom: Mother Nature

Here’s a bit of wisdom that I picked up this week during the Chicago Blizzard of 2011.

( E. Jason Wambsgans, Chicago Tribune / February 2, 2011 )

DO NOT Challenge Mother Nature when snow is involved! (see blizzard challenge)  I was brash and young enough that the weathermen predict and control the weather.  I want to let you all know that this is not the case.  I believe it to be a higher power – Mother Nature.  When you challenge her to a duel you better be ready to reap the consequences.  I did and lost.

This is my formal apology to the city of Chicago for my brash statements last week.  I am sorry for causing the Chicago blizzard of 2011 the third worst blizzard in Chicago History.  I promise next time I will choose my words carefully.

I hope everyone in the Chicago and Chicagoland area has it in their heart to forgive me.
