    We watched the tornado that hit Coal City from our front stoop. Waiting to hear from another QB'er who lives in that city.
    May your stitches always be straight, your seams always lie flat, and your grain never be biased against you.

    It was extremely windy here today, but we didn't see any tornadoes. Still here.

    Watches and warnings all the way to the Mackinaw Bridge, but we only had huge amounts of rain - add in flood warnings - with 50 mph winds expected after midnight. This is November????

    It looks like Illinois took the brunt of it. Especially Washington, IL.

    An hour south of Springfield, we've got no damage. Wind and rain was it. There was big hail a bit north of us and Pekin and Washington look bad in pictures coming up on the WICS News Facebook page.

    I'm in Lincoln, IL, 40 minutes north of Springfield. We had tornado warnings and high winds, some branches down but the worst went just north of us. My son in Peoria had part of the flashing torn from his house and maybe some roof damage. The quilt shop in Washington, Peddlars Way, sent an email to its subscriber list that the shop was OK but without power and it would be closed for at least 1 day, or maybe longer. This a really cute shop, near the downtown square that has some other fun shops. I'm hoping those businesses were spared.

    Morning from Michigan, we were under tornado watches but nothing except heavy rain and high winds. Hope everyone else is okay.

    A friend of mines' daughter lives in Washington, IL. Her house blew away! That area was hit the hardest! We lost some metal roofing that was already peeling off of an old corn bin ....i saw it flying toward me way as I was frantically trying to get my car into the detached garage and the huge sliding door on our pole barn is now on the ground. It was fine as I was pulling in....then all hell broke loose! I was never so scared in my life. I swear I saw the witch on the bicycle fly by! The wind (tornado-light?) was incredible! I held onto my steering wheel so tight as I raced to get home from church. Heart beating! Never want to go thru that again! Living in the prairie is always an adventure!

    We are still here - high winds, heavy rains, some flooding in the yard and breeze way plus it's roof leaked a little. Everything is ok now though - now to fix the roof.
    NEVER let a sewing machine know you are in a hurry.

    here in Indiana spent some time in the basement & lost power for a couple of hours but no damage to house & no trees in the yard came down, but think some trees back in the woods fell. Maybe will take a tractor ride later & see - hope not the trees with the deer stands in them - lol. We count ourselves blessed, as others have lost everything.

    I live in Morris- the sirens went off 2 times. Was at my sisters house and saw shingles, big pieces of roofing paper in the wind going over us. Went to basement at nephews house. Got home and all ok.

    We live on a high hill. I haven't heard of a tornado in this area. We had high winds, a little rain. No damage. A few miles away there was damage. I don't think any one hurt or killed, just downed trees and damaged houses.
    Illinois and all flat lands are in danger any time there are storms.
    Midwest is in the middle of the United States. My only explanation and what I've always heard. I don't know who came up with that term or when.

    We didn't lose any trees but my DH is helping to get some cleared away. Lots of big trees went down around here.

    Had crazy high winds in SW MI last night but thankfully no trees came down at our house, although I did see many trees with big brances down on my way to work. We've been without power since 5 pm yesterday, and they're saying it could be 2-3 days before power is back on. Thank goodness for whole-house generators. The best investment we ever made in this house! Prayers go out to all those in tornado areas. That was terrifying.

    Because it's mid-way to the "west".

    My DD was traveling back to FT Wayne IN - we were getting reports from friends in Indy that the storms were getting bad - we were lucky that she was close to our friends house in Perrysburg OH where she stayed and rode out the storm - two tornadoes within a mile of their house! We were blessed that they were home so she was able to seek shelter!

    tornadoes touched down within 10 or so miles from us. We only got super high winds that took down our hay tent and ripped a door off of one of our buildings. Power was out but only for a few hours. We were very lucky.
