    The weather is expected to be pretty nasty Friday afternoon and evening. The area should get 2-4 inches of snow during the afternoon followed by a mix of sleet and freezing rain in the evening.

    How much does this kind of weather typically affect the attendance for an important game like this?

    I travel to IC from eastern WI. Most of the state between here and Dubuque will see 6” to 10” of snow. So, I will have to do the TV thing on Friday. Damn.

    3-5” of snow with a 17-30 mph wind = How many times E or W bound on 1-80 between DSM and MLI will be blocked on Friday?

    What does my wife and Iowa City have in common?

    They'll both get 2-4 inches by Saturday.

    Are the students back yet?

    They should let them in for free like they did for Wisconsin during Fran's first year when we had 8-12 inches.

    High school games wont happen tomorrow night. That may actually bring people in who otherwise would be attending them.

    Went last week, decided to stay at a motel instead of driving back to Dubuque. Might try again this week. Checking out motels again.

    Might be ok. Weather always has a worse effect on the visiting team.

    Try the Drury in Coralville. Rates are reasonable; some nice perks. I booked there for all of Iowa’s home games.

    Think they'd ever out-right postpone a game like this?
