Craig’s List: 4 Things to Know – 4/17
Gorgeous day ahead. Are you sure you're feeling ok? I think you might need a 'sick day.'
1 - We'll string together our third nice day today with sunshine and a high of 74º. Tuesday should be nice too, before rain moves in and temps cool for the back half of the week. WQAD Meteorologist Eric Sorensen has forecast details here.
2 - Spring means construction. Today big changes come to the John Deere Road corridor as traffic moves to a head-to-head configuration on the north side lanes. The exit from westbound I-74 to John Deere Rd east will also close today. Katrina Lamansky from our news partner, WQAD News 8, has details here.
3 - Your Quad City Mallards split games one and two in their first round ECHL playoff series in Fort Wayne on the weekend. The series moves back to the iWireless Center for games three, four, and five, with Game 3 on Wednesday night. Details and scores when we do That Sports Thing at 7:35am on The Morning KIIK Start.
4 - I am on the hunt for the Quad Cities Best Milkshake. Can you help? I need your suggestions of where I should search. The obvious ice cream places like Whitey's and Country Style are on my list, but what out-of-the-way, off-the-radar places do you think serve a great milkshake? Comment on our Facebook page, or on my blog at KIIK1049.com.
Have a great Monday.
