Internet pioneer John Perry Barlow is dead at 70
A memoir, Mother American Night: My Life in Crazy Times , which Barlow wrote with Robert Greenfield, is to be published this year. Barlow was born in rural Sublette County, Wyoming, in 1947 and grew up in Pinedale, where his parents were ranchers.

Now the axis of heaviest snow (4-8 inches and up to 10 inches in some localized areas) is expected to occur generally along and north of an Iowa City to Davenport, and to a Princeton, Illinois.

"I had to push my flight back first, then the bus was late 'cause of the snow, which was OK because we were running late as well", she said. Even though those locations are not within the WLFI viewing area, our northern counties (Pulaski, Fulton, Jasper and Newton) will likely be impacted.

Snow coming in later Thursday and continuing Friday could dump 2 to 3 inches of snow in Madison, with higher amounts in the 4 to 6 inch range along the state line, and up to a foot of snow is possible across northern IL.

The intention is to allow DPW crews the opportunity to properly remove snow and ice.
