Don't know why, there's no sun up in the sky; stormy weather…

Crazy storm here this morning, although it’s not as crazy as last night, which left us (along with about 25,000 other people) without power last night (so no Project Runway spoilers—we haven’t seen it yet!) after two separate storms. There were reported tornados, 100mph winds, torrential rain, flash floods, hailstones, exploding power lines—it was nuts.

The first of the small but damaging storm cells swept down from Lake Michigan just before 6 p.m. An aircraft pilot reported a funnel cloud about eight miles from the shore headed in the direction of Beverly Shores.

The second storm cell followed about a half hour later, bringing more high winds and more warnings of tornadoes from the National Weather Service. This cell made its way deeper into Porter County, bringing with it marble-sized hail and covering streets with an icy gravel.

…Vehicles in the parking lot at Blue Chip Casino were also submerged in water.
Not the casino! Noooooooooo!

Mr. Shakes and I went to the closest pub to have a drink and watch the Cubs game.
