  1. Video of downstate tornado yesterday by Andrew Pritchard.
  2. Took this pic of tornado warned cell west of Gilman, Illinois about 30 minutes ago.
  3. Tried to catch tornado warned cell as it was near Beecher. Looking northeast
  4. Headed down toward El Paso, Illinois on tornado warned storm. Tons of “chasers” on the storm. Didn’t see it produce but storm structure was decent.
  5. Took the boy out for a lil chase to the Washburn, Illinois area. Severe warned cell dropped some quarter size hail.
  6. In Italy, 85.6 percent of those who have died were over 70, according to the National Institute of Health's (ISS) latest report. With 23 percent of Italians over 65 years old, the Mediterannean country has the second-oldest population in the world after Japan - and observers believe age distribution could also have played a role in raising the fatality rate.
  7. You can really see how impressive the depth, longevity and widespread the snow cover was in 79.

  9. Mostly sleet and rain here, with some flakes thrown in.
  10. Returns in Pontiac look good. Obs say it’s all snow, for now.
  11. Looking toward 311 South Wacker and “Willis Tower.” Traffic nightmare.
