I looked at my Blackberry at 5:07am on Saturday. Three of the people I follow on twitter were already in position downtown. Ya, I was unlikely to get a great spot. I didn’t much care, but it was amazing to see knowing that the forecast included a hot morning and thunderstorms as late as six pm Friday.  Like thousands, and thousands, and thousands of others I got on the Blue line at Wonderland with friends after barely escaping the first tshirt vendor of the day.
