Enough with the Wind Already, March!!!

Well, since the Superbowl is now is the books, I guess I can start a new blog, lol.

Lots of happenings here. 2 grands on the way (one any day now) and a wedding for our son. Couple of other weddings to attend AND still need to get down to see Mom in FL and Aunt, etc... This year will be non-stop.

Hoping all WU friends are doing well and still check in here and there. I truly miss the old days (and I wasn't even one of the found...

10/21/2016 - Let's not mince words here: Go Cubs Go! So very cool-- this team!!

Hello from Chicago. Probably going on at least night 3 of late nights watching Matthew.
Decided to open the blog out of concern for the troubling forecast potentially unfolding with this one.
Of course, it is difficult to articulate concerns on FB and not look like a freak. At least here, at the WU, I'm not alone in my worrie...

Threat of Severe Again as N. Illinois Swelters

By: juslivn, 3:54 PM GMT on May 18, 2016

Blog closed for now.
Be safe all ships.


After two days this past week of frost warnings, it looks like we may finally be warming over the weekend. It's been rainy, overcast and cold most days so I haven't even aclimated my plants for the the most part yet. This year's gardening will truly be survival of the fittest, because I truly feel we may still have a late frost looming out there all the way into early Jun...

Warming Trend for Chi! Probably a Perfect Spring and We'll Forget all Else...

Well, it is Spring and I hadn't started a new blog all Winter! Thanks for stopping by with Easter wishes, New Year wishes, St. Paddy's wishes, lolol. I am on FB mostly, but like to come back here usually once a day to lurk, or at least once a week. If something is going on with severe, I'll be here if I can, as usual. But feel free to post significant weather if I'm not around.

So, with some severe entering the area today, I caught the bu...

Spring? Looks like we are on our way. Nice temps this week in N. IL

It has been a very warm November so far. Hoping you all have a Great Thanksgiving later this month and that we won't have it really bad this Winter with it being an El Nino :)
Golf weather at Christmas would be just fine with me.
I have about 200 or 300 bulbs ready to be planted this weekend for a super show in Spring.
As I said, hope it won't be a lousy, long Winter and maybe some of those bulbs will peek out early.
