as many of you may have seen on the news the chicago area got hit with a major storm. the winds were 60-70 miles per hour in some areas. we got hit pretty hard. i was at work and was tracking it on the internet, within minutes we were in a tornado warning and the sirens were sounding. the storm was in and out of the area within 15 minutes, it was crazy though. the trees were literally bent side ways. we lost power about two minutes into the storm. my house lost power around 3:30 on thursday and we didnt get it restored until around midnight on sunday night.
these are some pictures we snapped right after the first storm hit. the second wave was mostly rain. the area had a lot of bad flooding and lost power for days. meteorologists are saying we havent been hit by a strom this powerful in over 30 years.
here are some pics:
