Hopefully a block of Netflix is arriving in your mailbox today because it's going to be stormy weekend, with a chance of showers and thunderstorms likely this afternoon and evening. Saturday will be cool and rainy and Sunday will be cloudy and cold. Bleh. And although a weekend full of critically acclaimed, award winning new DVD releases sounds tempting, we're still hoping the rain holds out on Saturday for one of the first street festivals of the summer. [Ed note: Check out the Illinois Thunderstorms Flickr pool. I like that one.]
