You're not to far from me. The winds are horrible!

Quoting the_dude:

just some down branches, one of the windows in the wood shed broken through. and the hounds doghouse roof is gone, but everything else is ok.   took cover, on the MI/IN border. got dicey for a bit, rotations, but nothing touched down, my husband got home just as i was closing the root cellar, which was perfect timing, cause the sirens went off for the second time right after and my 5.5 yo was freaking out about daddy, somehow, my toddler, never woke from her nap even when i moved her off the couch, until he closed the door. so she never knew he was gone.

the winds still gusting around 55mph here, under high winds advisory until 1 or 4 am or something.

Me too. I was on my way home from the laundromat earlier and the wind was pushing my Bronco around like a Tonka truck!

We didn't even have sirens an hour and a half away from Milwaukee. DH works in IL though. He would have been called if there was an issue.

I'm in Berne, Indiana. Nothing but rain and wind here, but I'm glad to see those around me are ok.

NW IL here. Tornado hit just south of us. We have had crazy wind, storms and hail. Now it's just cold and windy.

I am in Michigan, storms earlier, a lot of rain, and still a LOT of strong winds.  Our tornado watch expires in about 8 minutes.  A lot of place around us have had trees down and lost power, so far we have been lucky though.

Southern in. We were in a little gap that didn't get hit. Tornados just north and south of us, but it didn't even get cloudy here.
