Pretty nasty rainstorms this morning and this picture is from a few blocks down the road here, actually very near the Highland Park area gaining attention over the past few days due to the cancellation of a school trip attributable to rampant out of control PC as well as a misguided "show of solidarity" with all the illegal aliens in the area thanks to the fact that Chicago is a damn sanctuary city...

This picture appeared this morning in the local Daily Herald website
and is literally visible from my neighborhood off to the left out of view of this shot.......
