    being in the general vicinity of champaign, let me be the first to say the weather sucks. Blizzard warning and all that. There's a stair case going up a hill that leads to the office. the lower third of it was buried. I got to the first landing, and the railing was still at my ankles... and I'm about 5-10. So yeah, the weather sucks, and I'm guessing that's the primary cause for the crash.

    What was: the blizzard or you being 5-10?

    The blizzard.

    But I'm a sneaky 5-10. If I were in some sort of sports writing media guide, I'd list myself at 5-11.
