    but towards the western edge, so it may simply start over or past us and then do damage to the east. That's what happened in August a few years ago. We had some trees down and a cell tower and power lines taken out by a small tornado/gustnado vortex and then it got worse as it got closer to Chicago with another south-bookend tornado and more people out of power.

    I may be caught on the road because of a rehab appointment. But if history is any guide, it will split apart right before it passes over us and one end will race off as an MCS while the other races off to Milwaukee and then off to Michigan.

      maps here. It points right at my area, south of Rockford, IL, to get nailed tomorrow. His explanation is here. It sounds like he might be thinking Derecho, but he doesn't say it.
