  • Is this the face of evil?

It’s not an enviable task to be a weatherman in Chicago, particularly in the spring when “predicting” the weather amounts to a guessing game. Most of us simply gird our loins and pack an umbrella and maybe an extra sweater.

But Cesar Ruelase is not most of us. He is a man of action! He has identified the chief perpetrator of Chicago weather mythology, enumerated his crimes, created a series of infographics to illustrate them, and launched a petition to demote him from “meteorologist” to “weather guesser.” He has, he says, devoted his life to this noble cause.

And who is this evil man who Ruelase describes as “a monster who seems intent on ruining our picnic plans, barbecues, and wedding photos with his inaccurate forecasts”?

Why, it’s WGN’s Tom Skilling!
