Yesterday I was interrupted from my Netflix binging by a loud blaring that echoed throughout my bedroom. I initially thought it was the fire alarm, but then I realized that it was an emergency alert on my phone. Flood warning in Cook County.
A few minutes later, I look outside and see that I can’t see across the street–there’s so much rain and there’s so much wind that it’s like there’s a wall of fog outside.
So, naturally, I run outside with a friend, avoid the falling branches/newspaper stands/street signs/rooftop furniture, soak our clothes, and Snapchat the whole experience
