All kinds of Mid-West excitement going on.

Not to "rain on your parade" (you look like you're having so much fin...) but did you know a nuke plant got struck by lightning near Chicago?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

Wow! Need to borrow my snorkel?

Best wishes to you - that looks miserable!
I guess that neighborhood can brag about their new underground parking facility...?

Love or fear? Choose again with every breath.

This is historic, and nuts!

See this picture of Chicago sinkhole with three cars in it.

Probably the most symbolic photo of the day, courtesy of Breaking911, showing a "huge sinkhole in Chicago due to heavy flooding at 96th & Houston. 3 cars in the hole." No further commentary needed.

Rahm was in the car

Whoa:

Bet the cat is having a problem with that.
