I would give up stocks in a heartbeat

...if there were some way to invest in weather futures. Every year on my birthday the weathermen predict perfect weather in the high 70s, and every year a cold front comes out of nowhere and pummels my city the night before -- taking us down to freezing. It is so predictable. I'll have to e-mail InTrade to see if I can get them to setup a weather market. People over here are probably wondering how the heck I could possibly know that a cold front was going to blindside us on December 4th at midnight.

This is the night when I annually stand out in the cold to watch the local Christmas parade. I'll drink an extra cup of special brew in your honor tonight.

Here's to you
