  1. I am in the center of Steger. Witnessed a lot of rotation about 5-10 minutes ago, but no tornado.
  2. That storm just passed over me in the last five minutes dropping hail up to nickel size.
  3. I wholeheartedly agree. I just got back home from driving on rural roads in central Will County. In addition to the heavy rain and lighting there were patches of incredibly dense fog covering the road in spots where visibility dropped to ten feet. Often the foggy spots concealed large amounts of high standing water on the road from view. Driving in a snow storm would have been more relaxing.
  4. I agree that lake effect snows give Lake and Porter Counties a very different winter character from the rest of Chicagoland, but that is only a small part of the year. Otherwise, they fit much better with Chicago than they would with any other wx office since those two counties are part of the Chicago metro area.
