Oh, Mr Skilling!

The storms that swooped by at around 1:30 brought driving rain and lowered the temperature from 90+ to 70 for a bit.

A reader at the Ribfest set-up sent in this photo and says:  "Crazy weather in Uptown for the Windy City Ribfest. One of the stanchions fell down, but was quickly repaired in the pouring rain."

Another reader reports electricity is out around Lawrence and Broadway.  Anyone other areas still powerless?

Update:  Seems from your Facebook comments that quite a bit of Uptown was without power, which is starting to be restored around 5pm.


  1. The 4700 block of Malden has been without power for a couple hours now

  2. All powered back up on Malden...
