    June 28-July 1 Severe Threat

    Had some hail (penny sized - thankfully not quite the baseball sized we had on 5/20) and some winds I would estimate in the 40-50 mph range out here on the far NE side of Aurora. Thankfully not too bad since most of my block is still getting repairs from that May storm. I was a bit concerned the neighbors contractor had secured everything since they were ripping off siding today.

    Just drove 355 up to 88 and over to Rte 59 from Bolingbrook to Aurora. Was zero visibility in spots. Intense out there.

    Early January Major/Potential Record Cold

    Well - we were without power here for about 2 hours this afternoon with temps outside around -12. House was cooling off pretty quickly without heat but fortunately ComEd got us turned back on. http://napervillesun.suntimes.com/news/power_outage_in_naperville_affects_over_1_500_in_d-NAP-01062014:article

    March 4th-6th Winter Storm Part 3

    Got out for a nice run at lunch time today - side roads were slushy - main roads just wet- In the past 2 hours - snow had begun to really accumulate on side roads. Temps have fallen back from 34 to 32 IMBY. Like others are reporting - flake size is small - but it's piling up pretty good.

    Temp up to 34 IMBY - even side streets here in the burbs are staying relatively clear of accumulation - moved an inch or so off my driveway 40 mins ago - and even with steady light to occasionally moderate snowfall since then - the driveway/sidewalks are staying wet.

    Check-in thread

    Never really posted much other than observations on the other board - but I was having withdrawal over the weekend when I went to it and it was gone...Glad I found this pretty much in tact! Looking forward to a snowy winter and all the insights provided by the members of the forum!
