What was that big burning object with the burning tail in the sky over your house Sushi? It was on the 10:00 pm news here. (for real ! ) They said it was a meteorite. Did you hear anything about it. {{{did you have anything to do with this?}}}
I live 10 minutes away from Ohare Intl Airport. What are you talking about?

Meteorite - LOL, I did not hear anything either.

On the cold weather front - I was at work yesterday in downtown Chicago and boy was it brutal walking over the stretch of the Chicago River. The wind chill was in some double digit negatives and did the wind soar. It was almost ghost town there when I compare it to other days. The lines at the Jimmy John's in my building were incredibly long, no one wanted to go out and that's very unlikely of Chicagoans.

I hope this cold spell passes soon, I am ready for Spring.

Folks in our area saw it, too. It was reported on yesterday's 5 o'clock news. I wish I'd seen it.

Our area is under a winter storm warning. The snow started around 12:30 and my office closed and sent everyone home at 1:30. My husband is enroute home but he has been in the car for an hour already (normally takes 25 minutes). The snow is really dumping down here, supposed to get 6 - 8" tonight.
Its cold here too but sad to say, at least the snow warms us up a little. It was 3 this a.m. and now its 21 - its the little things.

He got home around 4:00 pm. He is out working on the driveway now - most of the businesses in the Cincy area closed early today to let everyone go home before the snow got too bad. Still snowing here but we are in for the night.

We are supposed to get a couple of inches of dry powdery stuff between 7 pm and 7 am.

All is lost. Schools will close. Grocery stores will be deluged. And I will still have to go to work tomorrow.

Well.. It was a balmy 6 degrees ABOVE zero today when I got done with work.. I got a lot of hassle for wearing shorts and a t-shirt today, but I calmly explained that we're having a heatwave... A tropical heatwave...

6 above zero is 30 degrees warmer than yesterday.. I'll take the warmer temperature where I can get it..
