I'm wearing shorts!

The weather here has been crazy the last couple of days. Yesterday Rockford Hit 60 degrees, and on the ride home tonight I hear we set a record high for today at 63 degrees. 63 degrees in January, okay... that's just wrong. To make matters worse we had a severe thunderstorm come through that produced a tornado. Yes, a tornado in Northern Illinois in January. This is just freaky.

A popular local attraction was destroyed by the tornado, or so the news says. My main thing is that I haven't heard from Graumagus. His house is out in the area the tornado touched down. One of the news reports I heard advised that some of the houses in his community were damaged. Nothing serious, but there was some storm damage. I'm sure everything is okay with him and his family, but it sure would be nice to hear from him just to know for sure.

Holy crap! Hope all's right with the old (young) bastard!

There was also a tornado warning east of Peoria in Tazwell county. Highly uncommon, but not impossible to believe.

Hope Grau is alright.

It's going to be weird here today too. We have about two feet of snow and it's supposed to hit 61! I may need to get out either the rubber ducky or Noah's Ark...
