    Yesterday, sunny, 51 degrees. Nice enough for me to go on my first ride of the season on my road bike, in shorts no less. Fast forwards 12 hours, winter is back. So far, we have got maybe a foot over the past 7 hours and there saying it probally won't let up until tommrow at noon. Right now, there are steady 20 MPH winds with 35+mph gusts. I had to drive today so I had to get the 6+inches of heavy snow on my car off. I would finish on one side, and the other side would already have a thick coating on it. At times, we can't even see past our window because the snow is blowing that hard. This is crazy.

    Down state its high 60's and tornado watches. However, we have had a few rumbles of thunder during this blizzard.

    werd, chicago is an 7 hour+ drive from here

    Weather for tonight....

    Snow and gusty winds will lead to blizzard conditions at times. Low 21F. Winds NNW at 25 to 35 mph. 8 to 12 inches of snow expected. Winds could occasionally gust over 50 mph.

    You must be getting what just hit us last night and all morning. Saw a few lightning flash this morning going to work. Crazy.... Had rain right before it started to snow. Have fun man, got about 4-5" of snow with ice from it raining first.
