Storm of the Century

We were among more than 800,000 people in the Chicago area who lost power today after a thunderstorm that lasted about 20 minutes but did more damage than any storm in at least 13 years. We're among the lucky ones: our lights are back on. Some people may have to wait days.

In our area the Kenwood neighborhood around President Obama's house seems to have taken the worst of it.
