The Great Lakes Cyclone

Apparently it's gonna be bad. Severe storms are set to hit Chicago tomorrow morning around 4am, slow down tomorrow night, and then pick up again on Wednesday morning and last until 7pm Wednesday night. The National Weather Service is calling it "The Great Lakes Cyclone" and says will rank among the most powerful cyclones in the last hundred years. It's predicted to be the equivalent of a category three hurricane, so watch out for flying shopping carts and road signs, falling trees, and smashing pumpkins. Seriously.

Whoa--that is kind of exciting right? At least your car will be safe and sound underground! Do you have a full-body raincoat to wear to work or will you take a cab?

Nope, no raincoat. I'm thinking I'll just take a cab. The only problem I foresee, though, is that everybody else will be taking a cab, too. Cabs might be hard to come by and it might be too windy for an umbrella :(

You're welcome to borrow our hot dog cart umbrella...then you could just Mary Poppins your way to work.

Haha, that was so awesome when Krista realized you were being serious about using that.

I was admiring the mountain waves of a very tumultuous Lake Michigan this morning, but by the time I left for work the wind had died down and it was merely sprinkling. I took a cab as a pre-caution. I didn't want get crushed if a sudden gust of wind blew away Cloud Gate. Or a kitten.
