Hello from Chicago. Probably going on at least night 3 of late nights watching Matthew.
Decided to open the blog out of concern for the troubling forecast potentially unfolding with this one.
Of course, it is difficult to articulate concerns on FB and not look like a freak. At least here, at the WU, I'm not alone in my worries about this storm.

Blog closed for now.
Be safe all ships.

Spring? Looks like we are on our way. Nice temps this week in N. IL
