    I hope everyone in the path of this monster storm is staying safe? I went through one, it's not something I would want to do again.

    How do we form a mutiny? Our new captain is navigating poorly.

    Chicago has enough going on, but it may quell the riots.

    Take care Art.

    My son in Des Moines is one of 100,000 who lost power. He also lost a fence panel when a large elm branch came down in his backyard. Not too bad once it arrived here. Lots of random high winds, but not a lot of rain. I lost about a dozen pears from my tree, and there are a few small branches scattered around up and down the street, but all good otherwise.

    We’re in its path, but it’s a few hours and the width of Michigan away, hopefully it’ll loose some nastiness before it crosses the border.

    A friend in Western Illinois had 100MPH winds at his house - lost a number of trees. Peoria had 70MPH.

    I'm 24 miles due west of O'Hare airport, and by the time it got here, it was pretty tame.
