It Is A Windy City

Or at least it was this morning. Us folks here in Chicago had our first true thunderstorm of the year roll through this morning! I know some of you out there don't like days like this, but to awakened by thunder and lightning is a calming feeling for me. Plus, we needed the rain.

Here's a shot of the radar just as the storm was poised to strike:

Speaking of Chicago, some of you may have heard of the The Encyclopedia of Chicago (published Fall '04). Well, today they launched their own online version, which includes several (most?) of the entries from the book. All in all, a pretty cool site to play around on.

Leave it to Mr. Westy to post a map in his first few blog entries! I'm sure there will also be more of those to come. :)

Actually, the online Encyclopedia of Chicago contains all of the entries in the book, with more content added as well.

Thanks for the info.
