And yeah, a Volvo, a couch, a tree... Anything that weighs more than you and is moving faster than you, well that's death incarnate.

You haven't mentioned what if any precautions you took after being drenched. Personally, I find that so much as sitting on wet ground, let alone being caught in a rainstorm or blizzard ALWAYS makes me get sick with a severe cold about three days later. I have found a way that keeps me and my relatives from getting this though. As soon as I get indoors, dried off and changed, I heat up chicken soup and eat that ... even if I'm not hungry. It's medicine in advance. I ALSO drink 16 oz of cranapple juice and take double a daily dose of B & C vitamins. I do the soup and vitamins on day 2 and 3 as well. When we do this ... we don't get sick. When we don't ... we always get sick. So, something in that mix helps prevent a cold.

I live in carpentersville. I work at a landscaping company in Dundee. I happened to be working in elgin when the little storm came through. It hit me while I was driving. I was on Duncan street. Right under the construction of i90. An right after it came hard !!! The cables were on the floor I ran drive right through them. Branches were on the road I had to maneuver around them. It was horrible !!! I felt like I was in the 2012 movie for a second ! It was crazy.
