As I type this, a severe storm with some tornado sightings is ripping through the Chicago area, including downtown. The worst of it seems to have passed me (about half a mile West of the loop) a few minutes ago, but a few tornadoes were reported, including as close to me as Logan Square. Not sure about damage yet, but it looks like downtown is out of the danger zone.
However, the news just mentioned something about a funnel/tornado sighted near 147th and Cicero – right near Bachelor’s Grove Cemetery, the abandoned cemetery that is reputed to be among the most haunted locations in the world.
I can’t imagine the storm could damage it too much more than the vandals already have, but we’ll keep you posted if we hear anything. Could some underground energy or ley line or somesuch business have attracted the tornado to the area? I’m no expert on that side of things, but something tells me they might be talking about this storm in paranormal circles for some time.
We’ll keep you posted if there are any updates on damage in the area.
