My cousin in Chicago reported that it took her 2.5 hours to get home - normally a 15 minute trip on the train. At least she got home. It looks so nasty on the video clips.

The storm passed us with no twirlies, not even a forecast thunderstorm thanks to the easterlies that kept it cold and miserable today, though we had heavy rain and the area is under a flood watch. Sometimes cold and miserable is a good thing. (Ack - Did I say that? )

Auralie and all, just talked to my family in Petersburg, IL. Dad just
shoveled the walk from the house to garage so he could get his cell phone
out of that car. LOL! My sister keeps shoveling out the back door so she can
let the dogs out. They live across the street from one another. My
Brother-in-law is stuck at the hospital in Springfield where he works for
tonight at least if not til Thursday. The wind is howling and drifts are
beginning. So far no power outages! I am just saying my prayers that y'all
all stay safe and warm. We are in for thunderstorms tonight-no biggie-used
to that, although we may be the ones without power! Stay safe!!!
