I had several assignments this evening, but one popped up out of thin air as heavy thunderstorms passed through the Chicago area this evening. Here in Oak Park, many of the streets were filled with fallen trees and three limbs. Moments after the first wave of the storm moved over I parked my truck and walked a few blocks as residents came out to survey the damage. Some fared worse than others.
