It’s the day before C2E2. Surely, you’ve checked the weather by now. The news isn’t great, but hey, it’s not like you’re going to Chicago to work on your suntan, right?


Yes, we can expect some rain this weekend. And wind. And maybe a little thunder. But you’re going to be inside at the convention. The weather shouldn’t affect you, right? Well, yes and no. It’s true that you’ll be largely out of the rain, but you’re not going to be inside all day. Even if your hotel is only two blocks away from McCormick Place, two blocks can be a really long distance in a thunderstorm. Pack an umbrella and a good, waterproof jacket that won’t weigh you down on the convention floor. Also, remember that nothing is less comfortable than a pair of soaked sneakers. If you anticipate walking much in the rain, consider bringing an extra pair of shoes and socks to change into afterward.


Staying dry equals staying happy at a convention, so try your best to do both. After all, we want you to enjoy all of the great stuff we have in store for you!


Of course, you can also enjoy it from the comfort of your home (or C2E2 hotel). Starting tomorrow, we’ll be using our website, Twitter and Facebook pages to hook you up with exclusive content and give you an unprecedented level of coverage…

DC is at C2E2!
