Planning on seeing the Winter Classic in Chicago?

You might be watching college football instead. The temperature in Chicago has been in the 50s the past several days just like here. Seems ice-making has been difficult despite state-of-the-art equipment. The NHL is saying that the ice is almost thick enough and expects colder weather this week to allow for finishing off the ice. Supposedly there is a rain date of January 2. They will play in warm weather but not in rain.
