Today is Friday the 13th. While I am not onto that particular superstition, many are and I hope their day goes well. Let's also hope that all the St. Patrick's Day festivities do not suffer too much from the weather. Watching the weather reports, it looks like there is a forecast for scattered thunderstorms in/around Savannah, which is known for its St. Patrick's Day activities. Boston, home of another legendary St. Patrick's Day celebration, also has rain in their future. Although I don't think a bit of rain ever stopped the Irish, or those who are Irish for the day. The Chicago crowd will have sunshine and be in the 40's. Perfect for a parade and a wee drop'a. Slainte and Erin Go Bragh! ~ Michael S. Pauley
