A bit of weather

    Everyone in Chicago okay? The storm that just blew through here was as bad as I've seen.

    80 m.p.h. winds, torrential rains...And it all lasted around 25 minutes.

    Seemed like Hurricane Dean made a beeline for the city.

    I'm enjoying just a little bit of time off and it's done nothing but piss all week. I can't even get my lawn mowed.

    Just called my parents; they're sitting in the dark with the electricity out. A storm like that gets even scarier when you live on the fourth floor. Can't imagine what those winds were like for people working/living in high rises.

    Here in Southern Indiana, there's been no need to mow the yard the past month.

    25 straight days of 90+ weather and only enough rain to fill a bedpan.

    I took the weedeater out the other night and trimmed around the house, and damn near wept at what's happened to my yard.

    They made us move away from the windows. First time in all my years here that's happened.

    We had a report someone was blown off the EL platform onto the third rail. Dead. Never a good way to go, but that is certainly a bad way.

    Shit I thought it was Hell that's supposed to freeze over when the Cubs are in first.
