|Bad hair day|
Forecasters were calling for this to be the worst storm in a decade. Then they upped it to 70 years. It's bad, but it doesn't seem earth-shattering. In preparation for this storm, Chicagoans were asked to take everything off of their balconies. Since we're short on space, many people's balconies become essentially a storage area. You'll see suitcases, kids toys, all types of furniture, and of course, grills. Forecasters were worried about these objects becoming flying debris. Scary!

So to all those people whose balconies were not cleaned off (ex: most of my neighbors)...just remember, we are a sue-happy country. If your BBQ grill falls on me? If I live, I'm totally taking you to the cleaners.
