4 funnel clouds, 1 Wall cloud.

Wall cloud went right over the house. It seems to be east of us now, passing Schaumburg and into Elk Grove Village.

It was nice to hear the pretty sirens... LOL!

I was driving from my house in Lake in the Hills to Shelly's in Joliet and the weather was horrible!!! 15mph down Randall Rd and you couldn't even see the car in front of you... I was driving through "puddles" that ended up splashing water well over the top of my car... Got on 90 and again, going about 15-20 mph... damn it sucked!!! But then as soon as I got to about Barrington Rd, the rain stopped and the sun came out!!!
