Snow on Monday here in the Windy City has me wondering if Spring will ever come! We’ve got a good show today, light on news content but I’ve got some good comments via e-mail to share. I really appreciate the handful of responses I received regarding last weeks “Call for Help”. If you haven’t listened to last weeks show yet please take a moment to do so. What’s covered in the first 25 minutes is important to everyone in our industry. For those of you in North Carolina, our thoughts and prayers go out to those who were in the path of the tornado's that touched down over the weekend. Scary stuff and a reminder how helpless we can all become when mother nature decides to show her power.
